About Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High School

Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High School is the newest Catholic high school in the Diocese of Arlington, and the only high school in the United States to offer a 4-year bioethics curriculum.

Since opening in 2008, we have served more than a thousand students. Our students earn top SAT and AP scores, and our graduates attend the finest universities, including Ivy League schools, Catholic institutions, military academies, and others across the country.

Our 40-acre campus in Dumfries, Virginia, is more than just an impressive state-of-the-art facility; it is a place where students are challenged and nurtured academically, socially, and spiritually. It is a place where faith is lived and achievement is expected. Our students are prepared to succeed in higher education, and in life.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about who we are, but please also come visit us soon. Attend our Open Housean admissions tour, or one of our home games. Meet our exceptional faculty, interact with our friendly students, and discover the John Paul the Great difference.

Our Campus

Our beautiful, modern, and technologically-advanced campus sits on 40 acres of tree-lined property just minutes from Route 1 in the Southbridge/Potomac Shores neighborhood of Dumfries, Virginia.

The architecture of the remarkable building speaks in a unique way to our Catholic mission and culture, beginning with the chapel which serves as the physical and spiritual heart of our school. Vaulted arches at the entrance of the school lead the way to the tabernacle.

Pope Benedict XVI publicly blessed our tabernacle – in the presence of nearly 50,000 people and a world-wide television audience of millions – at the conclusion of Mass at Nationals Stadium in Washington, D.C. on April 17, 2008.

Other impressive school distinctions include:

  • Eight modern science labs, with separate lecture and lab work space
  • Collegiate-style library and research center
  • Interactive electronic notepads and projectors in each classroom
  • Video-conferencing capabilities
  • Monitored wireless internet access throughout the building
  • 500-seat theater with professional stage, lighting, and sound systems
  • Picturesque cafeteria with bistro-style seating
  • Popular catering service
  • Three athletic fields with electronic score boards including: football/field hockey/8 lane rubberized track; soccer/lacrosse; and, baseball
  • The main gym seats nearly 1,000 fans and is equipped with 6 drop-down basketball hoops, built-in volleyball inserts, and electronic score boards
  • Auxiliary gym for extra practice and competition space
  • Athletic Training Clinic
