Pope John Paul II Catholic School seeks to encourage each student to be his/her best self by developing good habits of heart, mind, body and soul.
This is achieved in a loving, affirmative atmosphere, where administration, faculty, and staff are dedicated to the growth and development of each young person through proclaiming the message of Jesus Christ by creating community, providing education, and praising God.
Our teachers are state certified and committed to reinforcing the Christian values taught at home.
We are proud of our faculty and the contributions they make.
Our goal is to provide each child an opportunity to grow mentally, physically, and spiritually… in preparation for life's challenges and life's fulfillment.
We are located in semi-rural Lecanto, Florida, where we have a campus bustling with activities and learning experiences that reflect our Christian values.
Our "Twelve Pillars" are: Integrity, Excellence, Courage, Respect, Obedience, Scholarship, Sacrifice, Prayer, Faith, Discipleship, Purity, and Service.
