I'm actually a grandparent. My granddaughter attended St. John Neumann Academy (SJNA) as a preschooler in the school year that just ended. She will move on to kindergarten there for the the 2016-2017 school year. SJNA combines the academic, spiritual, service and social aspects of education in a way that enables its students to grow and flourish. I highly recommend SJNA to all parents in the New River Valley area.

There are not enough words to say how wonderful this school is. My daughter had the privilege to attend this school for 4 years. The absolute only reason she is not going to be there this year is because of our family will be moving. The teachers and all the staff, along with the parents, at this school are wonderful! I have nothing negative to say about SJNA at all. The school is extremely family oriented and everyone knows everyone. The children are all wonderful, especially the upper school children. They are constantly interacting with the lower school children. During drop off and pick up, the upper school kids are so polite and so so nice to the younger kids. Not to mention the student/teacher ratio. It is overall the best school in this area, and the best school I have ever seen. We love SJNA and if we happen to come back to the area there is no doubt that my child will be welcomed back as if she never left. SJNA will always hold a special place in my heart. They did so much for my daughter and I. We will miss them very much!

I can not say enough about this school. I will keep it short. This school is AMAZING. The teachers and faculty truly care about the social and academic development of the students. My son was accepted to two VERY competitive high schools after taking entry tests. I know this is because of the rigorous academics he had at St. John Neumann Academy. The teachers teach to individual student needs. They have a very low student/teacher ratio. I LOVE this school.

Hands down the best school for my children. The small class sizes allow the teachers to really get to know their students.This allows them to work on students strengths and weaknesses. There are reading buddies programs and school activities that encourage the older students to mentor the younger ones. Parents are always encouraged to be involved with the school.
