See Yourself at St. John's

Thank you for your interest in St. John’s College High School. As a Lasallian Catholic high school, our goal is to prepare young men and women for lives committed to leadership, achievement and service to the community.
 
Our community is filled with passionate students who strive to excel in and outside the classroom. Our teachers encourage students to grow as individuals and to think critically and analytically about the world in which we live. Opportunities are limitless. Our students work hard, but they also participate in theatre, art, band, Cadet Corps and athletics - often all at the same time!
 
Our goal in the Admissions Office is to help each family get to know St. John’s, just as we get to know each student. We take pride in knowing our applicants and recognizing the gifts and talents they will bring to our school. Well-rounded students are what make our campus come alive.
 
All 8th-graders are invited to spend a school day at St. John’s. Not only will you participate in classes and take part in our 1:1 educational technology program with the use of an iPad, you will also meet students, faculty and coaches and be treated to lunch in our cafeteria. It is a highlight of the admissions process for both our prospective applicants and our 9th-grade student ambassadors. The experience ensures our visitors leave with a full understanding of what sets St. John’s apart from other schools.
 
The high school admissions process is exciting and fun, but it can also be challenging. Please know that we are here to help you.
 
We look forward to seeing you on campus. Go Cadets!
