Since its inception in 2013, Padre Pio Academy has carried out the mission of providing an affordable Catholic education to homeschool students in the St. John’s Parish and surrounding communities. We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children, and we offer support by providing a part-time school to ease the workload and help them achieve their homeschooling goals.
We keep our tuition affordable, year after year! We operate on a slim budget so that families are not overburdened by high tuition costs. Additionally, financial aid is available to families in need.
We are growing! Last year we had record enrollments, and are currently looking for additional classroom space near our campus. This will add to our operating costs, but we want to accommodate as many students as possible.
We need your help! As a 501(c)(3) organization, we depend on fundraisers and donations to fill in our budget gaps. We hold a major fundraising event each year, and count on donations to help with the unexpected costs and requests for assistance. This spring, with the Coronavirus shut-down of all schools, we incurred some equipment costs in transitioning our classes to the online arena.
If you believe in our mission, and wish to financially support our work, please use the Make a Donation button and help us continue to provide affordable Catholic educational assistance for homeschooling families! We are grateful for any amount you can give!
If you are unable to help at this time, please spread the word to others who may be in the position to support PPA.
We appreciate your financial support, but also ask for prayers as we trust in our Lord to provide what we need to serve the homeschooling families in our parish and surrounding communities. Thank you for your support!
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.
