Rory J. Weichbrod Scholarship: Deadline April 21
This year, St. John's students have the opportunity to apply for the Rory J. Weichbrod Scholarship, named in honor of a local man who was killed by a drunk driver. The scholarship seeks to support young students as they grow into adults and are tasked with making adult decisions. There will be scholarships awarded for $1,000 (first place) and $500 (second place). Each award will be applied to the winning students’ following academic year tuition.

The Rory J. Weichbrod Scholarship Committee will assess all complete applications submitted by SJC freshmen, sophomores and juniors. A complete application will consist of the following: application form, essay, teacher recommendation and report card. Please note that an incomplete and/or late application will not be considered.

The winner of the 2014 Rory J. Weichbrod Scholarship will be publicly announced during the Academic Convocation in September, and the scholarship funds will be forwarded directly to the school no later than June 30, 2014. These funds will be applied to the winning student’s tuition for the upcoming academic year.

All RJW Scholarship packets need to be submitted via the postal service no later than April 21 to:

Rory J. Weichbrod Unfinished Business, Inc.

Parent Phonathon: Volunteers Needed
With the end of the 2013-14 St. John's Fund Parents Campaign quickly approaching, SJC parents are regrouping for one more phonathon to raise $400,000 with 100% parent participation for the benefit of 100% of St. John's students. The next SJC Parent Phonathon will take place on April 27 and 28, and we need a strong base of volunteers to reach our goal.  

The St. John's Fund provides for expenses not covered by tuition, supporting the margin of excellence that makes our children's educational experience at St. John's exceptional. The St. John's Fund Parents Campaign is our school's main fundraiser. We hope you will join us! If you are able to help, please click here to volunteer. To make your gift now, click here.

Inclement Weather Policy
St. John’s College High School follows the inclement weather/emergency policies of Montgomery County. When Montgomery County closes school, we are closed. When the county delays opening either one or two hours, classes will start at St. John’s at 10:05 am regardless. If Montgomery County closes their schools early, St. John’s will make an independent decision as when it is safe to release students. If the county is closed during weather/emergency, St. John’s will announce their own plans. Look for St. John’s College High School, Washington, DC and follow those directions. Parents should follow WTOP radio (103.5 FM) for up-to-the-minute details, which may also be found on the St. John's website. Buses will operate during this time on an amended schedule. Please see the late start bus schedule.
