Pope John Paul II High School was established in 1980. So named for the beloved Pope John Paul II, and run by the Carmelites for many years.    Then on April 27, 2014, Pope John Paul II became Saint John Paul II.    Just over a year later, on Friday, September 4, 2015, the Bishop was on hand to rechristen the school "Saint John Paul II Academy".

After the Carmelite community departed in 2007, a study in the spring of 2012 was done by Catholic School Management which recommended that it was time for the school to adopt a new charism.  With this in mind, and with the blessing of Bishop Gerald Barbarito and the Diocese of Palm Beach, Pope John Paul II HS began the process of becoming a Lasallian sponsored school which connects it with the Brothers of the Christian Schools and its founder, Saint John Baptist De La Salle.    On February 21, 2018 Saint John Paul II Academy became officially affiliated with the District of Eastern North America as a recognized Lasallian Institution. 

As we move forward, we honor the Carmelites for their tireless efforts over the years.  We will always remember where we came from and continue to look forward to where we are going to best serve our students.

So if you are a graduate of Pope John Paul II High School, or the renamed Saint John Paul II Academy, you are part of the same family, and we welcome you.
