  • St. John Bosco School educates youth academically and spiritually in the Catholic, Salesian tradition of Reason, Religion and Loving Kindness.
  • It is a school where children love to Learn and learn to Love.
  • We also believe that the specific function of a Catholic, Salesian School is to develop the human powers of each student – religious, moral, academic, psychological, cultural, social, physical, and aesthetic – thus preparing our youth “to open themselves more and more to reality and to form in themselves a clear ideal of life.
  • As Salesian educators, we strive to follow the educational approach of St. John Bosco, by creating schools with a family spirit, emphasizing reason, religion and loving kindness, in a positive atmosphere of discipline, friendliness, and cheerfulness.
  • In St. John Bosco’s own words, we aim to form our children to be “good Christians and upright citizens, empowering them with a joyful vision and hope of a better world.”.

My last of my three children graduated from St. John Bosco School just this year. Their entry level into a strong, college prep, Catholic high school speaks for itself as to how well SJB prepares their students for college. All three of my children tested out of Algebra I, English I . . . this means they will be saving me college dollars during their junior and senior years of high school. This school takes time and care to form their students in Christian values and citizenship. As an SJB parent, I can truly say that this school takes their goals of "heaven and college" most seriously.
