Principal's Message



John Paul II Catholic School is a school truly built and supported by our close-knit community.   At John Paul II, teachers and staff strive daily to create a safe and happy environment for students, while incorporating the virtues that relate to both the Catholic and Protestant faiths.  As members of the Body of Christ, we take pride in knowing that we are cultivating the Catholics and Christians of the future generations. 

Pope John Paul II’s motto was “Totus Tuus'' which is a Latin phrase meaning “Totally Yours''.  For me, this relates to us giving our hearts to Him, but also relates to parents trusting our school.  Knowing where to send your child is a decision that nobody should take lightly. Thank You for choosing, or considering, JPII and saying to us that your child is “Totally Yours”.  We thank you for entrusting your greatest gifts from God to us to mold into what they were created to become.  

At John Paul II, we are committed to raising well-rounded children.  Students can enjoy sports such as basketball, golf, and cross country.  They attend Mass twice weekly and are trained in altar serving and Catholic Theology.  Our curriculum and standards are regulated and modeled by the Diocese of Owensboro and closely mirror the KY State Standards. We also offer art, computer, library, and PE throughout the week.  

For the 2023-2024 school year, we are working towards our Purple Star Certification, which creates a safe liaison for our students of military families to connect with and rely on.  We also adopted the updated versions of Open Court Reading and GoMath for our students.

Please contact our school office at any time at 270-389-1898 to schedule a tour of our campus.  We would love to have you all! 

Blessings to your family, 


Mrs. Emily Girten, Principal
