Academic success is a defining outcome of a Catholic education. High expectations are set, for all students, from day one. Respect, accountability and confidence are the foundation from which our students act and excel. Pope John and St. Boniface students outperform their state and national peers on important standardized tests.
The Pope John Class of 2018 earned a school record $1,100,000+ in College Scholarships among its 16 member class. Every Pope John senior class applies for and receives many scholarships based on both community service and academic accomplishment.
Pope John students consistently score higher on the ACT than students attending Nebraska Public Schools. The 5 year -average shows Pope John’s students are well prepared for this important test. The ACT plays a key role in scholarship offers from colleges and universities.
Nearly every year we have students with University of Nebraska Regents scholarships (full-tuition paid) or RHOP/KHOP awards for those interest in attending UNMC.
We teach academics for success!
