Our Mission


As we minister to the families of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, it is the mission of Padre Pio Academy to support and assist homeschooling parents in the Catholic education of their children under the patronage of St. Pio of Pietrelcina. We will  supplement, in a classroom setting,  the education that parents are providing at home, thus making a high quality, low cost, Catholic education available to all.

In accord with the mission statement of the St. John’s Religious Education Department, we strive to instill in each child an abiding love of God and neighbor, using our Blessed Mother Mary as our model and guide.  We strive to impart to each child the doctrines of our faith in its fullness, as both knowledge to be learned and a life to be lived. 

Don't miss our Premiere
Annual Event:
Casino Night at Rappahannock Cellars

A delightful night out at Rappahannock Cellars!  Our Casino Night is a fun evening of casino-style games played with funny money.  With great wine, hors d'oeuvres, silent auction, and raffle,  this is our big fundraiser of the year.  All proceeds go to Padre Pio Academy, helping to keep our tuition low and enable us to continue serving the community as the only hybrid school in the area. So make your plans now to don your best party clothes and spend an evening of grown-up fun while supporting Padre Pio Academy in its mission!
