My son absolutely loves attending IJP! IJP provides a great learning environment while encompassing the Catholic faith for its students. IJP also has an amazing staff that is always able and willing to facilitate and administer to your child`s academic needs.

I am a proud alumnus and have now sent my daughter to IJP since preschool. The combination of high academic standards, extracurricular activities, and teachings of the Christian faith are well worth the price. IJP graduates students with a strong academic foundation and an unmatched moral compass. Make IJP your choice for your children!
