The heart of Saint John Catholic School is Christian Community. Our primary focus is the children under our care.
Our commitment is to provide a safe, secure and caring environment where faith formation, gospel values and a strong academic foundation can flourish.
In such an environment, we strive to guide each child to grow and develop to full potential.
Daily prayer, service to others, self-discipline, a sense of social justice, personal responsibility and conflict resolution skills are vital components of our entire school program.
Our school community recognizes and embraces the cultural, social, economic and religious differences that exist in our school and in the world.
We strive to instill in each child an inherent self worth and respect for all people.
The faculty and staff of Saint John Catholic School recognize the uniqueness of each child, acknowledging that children learn in different ways and at a different pace.
Therefore, our curriculum includes a variety of learning levels and techniques, teaching basic skills as well as critical thinking and problem solving.
We accept and support the needs of individual students and strive to meet these needs whenever possible.
Our goal is to encourage every student to do their best to develop their God-given abilities in caring, supportive and non-competitive environment.
