In 2001, a group of community leaders joined forces with Monsignor Joe H. Crosthwait and Monsignor Ed Randall and took a giant leap of faith. Soon, they were joined by others who believed in the leadership team and its purpose and vision for the future.
Pope John XXIII High School opened in 2004, the first new Catholic High School in the Houston area in more than 40 years – a refreshing new model of hope for the future of Catholic secondary education.
With the canonization of Pope John XXIII in April 2014, the school changed its name to
St. John XXIII College Preparatory.
Our mission is to prepare the hearts and minds of our students to serve God and others.
