WALK AROUND WEDNESDAYS

(CLICK HERE TO REGISTER)

Welcome to the St John School Website.  Catholic schools stand out from other educational institutions and the St John School is no exception.  We serve grades PreK3-Grade 8.  All of our students are taught about the Catholic faith – not just the basics of Christianity, but how to have a relationship with God.  St John students are held to the highest of standards, each child is inspired to reach his or her potential.  Lastly, our students learn the importance of service, the giving of one’s time and effort to help others.

As the Principal of the St John School, I promise that your child will be in a safe, faith based learning environment that emphasizes Gospel values. Our amazing faculty and staff are dedicated to each child's academic success and spiritual growth.

I encourage you to call to schedule a tour of our school and to see firsthand our faith filled learning milieu. I look forward to hearing from you!

God Bless You
Mother Elaine, SCMC, Principal

 

Mission Statement

The mission of St. John Catholic School is to provide an opportunity for students, parents, and staff to foster a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.  Infused with our faith, we strive to provide challenging academic programs in which dedicated, professional educators and families work together in a safe environment to inspire individual growth, self-discipline, confidence and Christian service.

 

Our shared efforts are directed toward creating an environment rich in opportunities to prepare our students spiritually, intellectually, socially, and emotionally for the future.

We are proud that both parents and students consider our school a great place to learn and we partner together in the words of our motto, to "educate the whole child."  We invite you to be part of our school community where Jesus is the core.
