St. John the Baptist Catholic School offers education from preschool through eighth grade.
Our students encounter learning in a spiritual and enriching environment.
Class sizes average in the low 20's per room; therefore, the teachers develop a great understanding of each individual child in their classroom.
In addition to gaining academic skills and experience, the students are engaged in the learning process and encouraged to develop intellectual interest as well as analytical skills.
Our goal is to have our students grow in their faith, build self-respect and learn how to care for others.
The students at St. John's consistently score well above the state and national levels on their standardized tests.
The eighth grade students feed into about 12 different private and public high schools, and over 80% of the St. John's graduates take Advanced Placement classes in high school. At St. John's we genuinely care for another and we work hard at supporting each other - faculty-to-faculty, student-to-student and faculty-to-student.
We work hard to help our students feel happy, safe, supported and appreciated.
We make every effort to instill Christian values in our students through our words and actions.
When you visit St. John's, you will see first-hand that our school is different! It is a great place for our young people to grow up.
