 A.S. - Student of the Month for October for 3rd through 5th Grades

A.S. is an overall great student!  She always works hard on whatever task she has and encourages others to do the same.  She can be very focused and determined.  A.S. invites others to participate in her activities and is constantly sharing the good qualities she sees in her peers. After recess, she will usually come up and tell me about various good deeds that she saw other people doing.  A.S. is an important part of our third grade class!

Catholic Values                Academic Excellence                       Classical Culture


We are an independent, private academy in the

Catholic tradition offering pre-k through eighth grades.

​Located in the scenic mountain valley of Montrose, Colorado,

the academy was founded in 2008 and accepts students from

K4 - 8th grades.  In October 2013, the academy moved into its

16,000+ sq. ft. facility which includes 10 classrooms, a library,

and a full sized gym on twenty acres of land.  In 2014, the

school received full accreditation from NAPCIS (National

Association of Private, Catholic, and Independent Schools).

The faculty is a dynamic, faithful team of committed Catholic

Christians living for God's greater glory as we strive to live the

new evangelization inspired by Pope St. John Paul the Great.

 J.B. - Student of the Month for October for Middle School

J.B. is a great student to have in class.  He is very thorough with his work and alway completes assignments on time.  I know that whatever the assignment is, J.B.  will do his best.  He is also an incredibly respectful young man and a natural leader.  With a great hard working attitude in the classroom and athletic ability, J.B. is an excellent student-athlete and is the Middle School Student of the Month for October.

Students of the Month

​​The past few months with Covid-19 have impressed upon us the importance of having our students learn in person.  That being said,

we also are dedicated to providing a safe environment in which your student can learn.  We have implemented several procedures to help

make Pope John Paul II Academy as safe as we can.

* Students will wear masks as they move inside the building.

* Desks are separated in the classrooms so that students may be seated and learning mask-free.

* The facility’s touchpoints are disinfected multiple times a day.

*Students are encouraged and required to wash and sanitize their hands throughout the day.

*Students are separated into pods.  Each pod works independently of other pods to lessen the possibility of exposure to other students

throughout the day.

*If a student in our school has Covid-19, our hope is that only their pod will be quarantined.

Our school has also taken measures to be able to provide online learning in case a pod needs to quarantine.  If students need to stay

home because of the virus, we will be providing online classes to keep them up to speed.

We are so grateful for the support we received from our families these past few months and are taking extra measures to help keep us in

our facility this academic year.

B.D. - Student of the Month for October for

K through 2nd Grade

B.D. is an extraordinary student.  Her handwriting is always neat and her assignments are always turned in on time.  She has a pleasant personality and is always willing to help others.  I appreciate her work ethic in class!  She has a quiet manner about her that is to be admired.  She is very willing to learn new things.
