- What differentiates your school from all others?
Affirming our religious heritage, we reach out to people of all faiths and backgrounds. Centered around a rich, research-based curriculum, St. John's is a traditional school with many strengths and offerings. In the long-established Episcopal tradition of education, "Students are encouraged to fulfill their unique potential through intellectual, moral, and spiritual challenge."
From communication to mathematics, from our school community to our role in the global community, from technology to character education, a St. John’s education is focused on preparing our students for whatever the future might bring. Our youngest students learn aspects of Six Traits Writing which is cultivated and expanded upon in later years. Our oldest students apply themselves to earn spots on our service-learning trip to Costa Rica and/or the middle school Model United Nations' experience in New York City. Character and faith continue to be idealistic pillars of the school. The H.E.R.O.E.S.™ Character Education Program gives common language and organizational structure to character development, while our Traits for Success provides guidance and instruction. Throughout, our child-centered program encourages our students to be active participants in their own education and offers leadership opportunities.
- What kind of student is most successful at your school?
Our students have a love of learning which is fostered in everything they do at St. John's. Our teachers nurture and foster that love of learning in a warm and caring environment where every student is known and loved.
- Why should we choose your school?
St. John's believes in a purposeful education for your child by taking intentional steps to ensure they are challenged to become confident learners, and to prepare them for what comes next.
Our rigorous, research-based academic program, featuring small class size and an accelerated curriculum, coupled with our strong belief in faith-based character education and community service, truly is the model for a balanced and transformational education. Each day, your child will enter an environment of cross-curricular learning, with teachers who work collaboratively to inspire and challenge them. Choosing St. John's means your child will learn the importance of moral character and global citizenship in a safe and nurturing community environment. Choosing St. John's means your child will be inspired each day.
But, don't take my word for it, come and see for yourself. To begin the application process, I encourage you to schedule a personal tour of St. John's.
