The best way to get to know JP Catholic is to visit us. We are convinced that a visit will prove to you that JP Catholic is right for you.
Yes, we are new and small - but you will find an academic program here that you will not find anywhere else. We have a robust and challenging collection of courses that will prepare you for a successful career in media and business; a small college atmosphere; modern facilities; access to plentiful recreational facilities and the best beaches in the US. On top of all that – we provide a faith-filled campus culture.
We look forward to seeing you in San Diego soon!

San Diego Airport is only 15 minutes away from campus. Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is about 2-hours and 120 miles away. There are plenty of hotels close by. We are glad to make recommendations based on your needs.
Bus Service to and from San Diego Airport:
Bus 992 (every 10-15 mins - fare $2.25) connects downtown and the airport and Bus 20 (every 30 mins - fare $2.50) connects downtown and the JP Catholic Apartments. Express Bus 210 connects downtown and the JP Catholic Apartments during rush-hour.
It costs $2.50 to travel from the airport to JP Catholic by bus using a transfer. When you board the bus, just ask the first bus driver for a transfer, and hand it to the driver of the second bus when you get on it. If you need the transfer for a third bus, tell the driver and he'll return it to you. You can use the transfer anytime within 90 minutes after the bus is scheduled to arrive at the end of the line. When your trip involves transferring from one route to another that has a higher fare, please pay the regular fare on the first route and get your transfer. On the second route, put your transfer into the farebox and pay the upgraded fare. The farebox will return your transfer with the new fare on it.
