|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
