Live in Spacious Apartments & Townhomes

Residential Life

JPCatholic students live in townhome and apartment units at Latitude 33 Apartment Community, about a 10-minute walk from our campus in downtown Escondido. Each unit comes furnished with fundamental furniture and kitchenware, as well as appliances like a washer and dryer. This unique set up provides you with more living space than a typical dorm room, and also helps develop important life skills before graduation.

Grow in your Faith

Spiritual Life

Our faith in Jesus Christ is at the heart of JPCatholic. We strive to create a campus environment where students can grow in their relationship with Christ through Sacred Scripture, the Sacraments, and the teachings of the Catholic Church.

A rich sacramental and prayer life is at the center of our students’ daily life, with the Eucharist being at the very core. Each day’s class schedule is structured around the Mass, so that any student who wishes may easily attend. Other devotions and ministries contribute to Catholic life on campus, including Eucharistic Adoration, Rosary, households, and retreats.
