We love the Christian family environment at St. John. The staff really cares about student success in all areas: faith, academics, and life balance. Students are well prepared for college and the next steps of life. Strongly recommend St. John for families in the Ocala area.

St. John has been a true blessing to our entire family. It has met each need for both of my two very different sons. St. John has laid the foundation (and continues to do so for my middle schooler) for them to go out into their next chapter grounded in their faith. Each teacher has gone above and beyond to nurture their faith and help them grow to meet their full potential. Academically my oldest who has graduated and moved on to college has been well equipped to handle the academic challenges of college. St. John is a 2nd Family to us and has provided a safe and loving place for them to grow and be forever connected to.
