In today’s world of education parents have so many options. That’s why your visit to our website is so exciting! The choice to attend a private school is personal and parents need to know the facts to make the best decision possible for their child.
When students graduate from our school it is with a solid foundation both academically and spiritually. From learning an integrated reading, spelling, writing and language curriculum-the Carden Method, to SAXON math in the elementary grades and pre- algebra and algebra in middle school, to history, social studies and science, St. John’s Episcopal School has a history of 64 years of academic excellence combined with building a spiritual legacy to last a lifetime. With the addition of Middle School, families can now choose to extend their child’s education with us beginning in Pre-School 3’s through 8th grade. Our after school programs are open to various ages and include Tae Kwon Do, dance, Stretch-N-Grow, golf and guitar. In the future we hope to have robotics, and a chess club up and running for our middle schoolers, as well as student council and a philanthropy club!
When you become a part of St. John’s you are a part of a family—one that is comprised of parents and grandparents, students, faculty and staff, a Board of Trustees, the church vestry, and the Friends of St. John’s-our parent association. We know it takes a village of people who care about the individual child and what is needed to accomplish the goals set before them. Besides rigorous study in classroom subjects, our students also attend Spanish, computers, music, art, and for the older students, choir and band. Chapel is attended by the student body 3 times a week focusing on bible stories, hymns and bible songs, and how they relate to our daily lives. We, as an Episcopal school, know that in an ever changing world faith and hope in God will give students the balance and strength to pursue their future.
St. John’s students also give back to their families and the community through events and programs during the school year. Christmas and Easter pageants, Grandparents/Special Friends Day, Blessing of the Animals, President’s Day, Thanksgiving Feast, and chapel programs which are all attended by families. The student body is also involved in helping with the Church’s Food Pantry program.
I would love to meet with you and schedule a tour. Make sure to bring your questions and let us show you what being a St. John’s Eagle is all about!
