SURREY—This time next year, educators will open a brand-new Catholic high school in an area that desperately needs one.
“The need has been recognized for many, many years,” said superintendent Dan Moric. “For at least the past 20 years, that I’m aware of, there has been talk, conversation, and aspiration towards a South Surrey high school.”
That aspiration may become a reality in September 2018 with John Paul II Academy.
The school already has a principal, an archbishop’s representative, groups of stakeholders and interested parents, and a financial plan, and by next fall, Moric expects it will welcome its first class of about 60 Grade 8 students….
