A quality Catholic education within reach for all.
“For countless Americans, a Catholic education is the surest path out of poverty. By providing a great education to children from low-income, working-class, and middle-income families, our Catholic schools have a profound impact on our local communities and on American society as a whole.”
Cardinal Seán O'Malley, O.F.M., Cap.
Archbishop of Boston

"I am so grateful to be part of SJP2CA. Being part of the Academy has literally been how I have built my faith life and embraced the way I want to spend my future. Today, I had the privilege of having a 3-year old homeless youngster fall asleep holding my hand against his cheek. I prayed like I never have before for this little boy to feel peace and safety...knowing that he fell asleep in our care because he knew he was safe and loved. THAT is our Academy. THAT is why I am so blessed to be part of this!"
