From the Phoenix Business Journal:

Scottsdale-based Double AA Builders Ltd. is breaking ground today on a Catholic high school to serve the growing number of Catholic students and families in the West Valley.

Gilbert-based HDA Architects designed the new school, which will be open for the 2018 academic year at 13720 W. Thomas Road, which is next to the St. Thomas Aquinas Parish in Avondale.

The closest Catholic high school to the 25-acre site is Bourgade Catholic High School at 4602 N. 31st Ave. in Phoenix, which is 20 miles away.

The Diocese of Phoenix’s newest high school will be named after St. John Paul II, who served as the Pope for 27 years and who visited Phoenix in 1987.
