From classic children’s literature to the Great Books, students will read authors such as R.L. Stevenson, C.S. Lewis, Homer, Plato, Dante, and Shakespeare. A special emphasis will be placed on St. Thomas Aquinas’ philosophy and theology. Every student will take advanced math and science courses, study classical languages, engage meaningfully with the wider community, care for plants and animals, explore the the arts, and participate in extracurricular
clubs and competitive athletics.
SCHOOL CULTURE
The school’s motto, “Evangelium Vitae,” points to our shared life as an a$rmation of the value of every human person. To realize this truth, the Headmaster and faculty will intentionally and comprehensively shape a school culture marked by joy, order, and friendship.
SCHOOL FOUNDERS TEAM
The school founders team is comprised of teachers, headmasters, professors, and executive leaders from across the country who are assisting in the development of the academy and the selection of its #rst headmaster. Collectively, our team has founded eight schools in four states, including independent Catholic schools and classical charter schools.
POSITION OVERVIEW
Reporting to the President, the Headmaster is responsible for successfully opening and leading the school. Responsibilities include parent engagement, fundraising, school program development, hiring, academics, culture, and operations of the school. The Headmaster will work closely with John Paul II Academy’s President and founding team throughout each phase of the school’s life.
