- St. John School exists to "Connect people in the heat of Jesus." We strive to prepare our students academically, socially, physically, mentally, but most importantly spiritually for the world around them.
- We begin our day with an all-school prayer. Students are then greeted over the speaker and recite a Bible verse of the week together. Classes engage in daily prayer, religion lessons, scripture memory recitations, and devotions. Chapel services are held once a week.
- Our congregation subsidizes nearly 80% of the cost to educate regardless of the students' church affiliation.
- St. John excels in academics boasting of 3-years running with a school-average MAPs test score at or above the 90th percentile nationally.
- Our students have the opportunity to engage in the athletic arena in the areas of football, volleyball, wrestling, cross country, basketball, and track & field.
- On-site childcare is available from 6:30a.m. to 6:00p.m. via In His Arms Childcare.

I love seeing my son come home talking about Bible stories and getting lost in chapter books. We are blessed that we can send him to a school where his faith can be reinforced and he can have dedicated teachers to push him!
