St. John Paul II Catholic School (StJPII) is the largest independent private Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Galveston Houston. Founded by laity, the school opened in 1988 with 56 students and now serves over 700 studnets pre-kindergarten through 8th grade. StJPII is dually accredited by the Texas Catholic Conference Bishops of Education Department and AdvancEd.

Belongingness, connectedness, community, and family are just a few words that students, staff, alumni, and parents use to describe the heart and soul of StJPII. This resounding theme unites the school and creates a strong foundation for each individual student. For these reasons, StJPII continues to focus on the social-emotional development of students in partnership with parents as a way to help children grow, learn, flourish, and achieve.
