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. 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 St. Pope John Paul the Great.

 Student of the Month for

Middle School

SS is a self-motivated student. He is polite and respectful, and actively participates in class discussions. SS excels academically and uses his spare time to help his classmates. He makes very good use of his time at school, and is quick to turn to other work when he completes his classwork. In his spare time, SS researches the topics he's learning about even further, and he always comes to class with a question. I am pleased to name SS the Middle School Student of the Month..

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.

Student of the Month for

Primary School

I am nominating KM for Student of the Month of March. He is an outstanding student in every aspect. When he is reading, he uses such great expression, you really want to hear what he is reading. He is just beginning cursive and does an amazing job even though he is learning. He challenges himself to do his best with his prayers and likes to be the first one to learn them. He learned the Apostles’ Creed in record time! In addition to this, he is a very spiritual person and has great knowledge and empathy for both Mary and Jesus. He loves to draw and has a fun personality!​

Intermediate School

RLW catches on to new class material quickly and has been determined to figure out the tricky problems. She is always trying to find something to help with, whether that is wiping off the whiteboard or teaching someone how to draw. RLW always has a good thing to share about her peers and is great at cheering other people up. She is empathetic and cares for her fellow classmates. Raina is an important part of the third grade class.
