America's First Catholic Schools

Catholic school feels like more of a family and feels like the students have faith in other students and their teachers. That is what drives making this a better community to learn in for me.Christopher "CJ" Hestick, St. Aloysius Elementary School & Pope John Paul II High School

I couldn't have asked for a better school experience. Everyone is always so supportive and I can always trust that they will be right there to help if I need it. They have prepared me by showing me the importance of responsibility, respect, and confidence.
AOP High School Graduate Survey Response


What peace of mind for parents to know their children wake up early each day and, for the most part, do not complain about school. It's a four short years in high school, so it's important to make the right choice. We did for sure.Renee Steinbach, Parent of students at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Elementary School & Lansdale Catholic High School
