Our 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!

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.
