Green Bay classical school named after JPII
continue at GBPG
The Catholic Diocese of Green Bay and the Green Bay Area Catholic Education system announced plans in the spring to create a new school that will use a Catholic classical curriculum.
The St. John Paul II Classical School will initially be open to students in pre-kindergarten to third grade, starting in 2015-16. The Green Bay school will add grades each year and eventually expand to serve students through eighth grade.
It will be housed in the St. Joseph School site on 12th Avenue in Green Bay.
Bishop David Ricken of the Green Bay diocese chose the name partly because of the popular former pope's approach to children and education. John Paul II, born Karol Jozef Wojtyla, was pope from October 1978 until his death in April 2005.
"He had a joyful message of the gospel," said GRACE system president Dane Radecki. "And that is the approach that we strive to share."
Side note: It's nice to see all the Gannett owned newspapers with improved websites.
