St John Orthodox Christian School
- Saint John Orthodox Christian School has been in continuous operation for more than 20 years by families seeking a loving, Christian environment and a solid academic curriculum for their children.
- As a ministry of Saint John Orthodox Cathedral, the school is situated in a quiet, beautiful setting on the church grounds.
- The mission of Saint John Orthodox Christian School is to provide an excellent academic education for grades pre-kindergarten through sixth grade, within the safe, nurturing Christian environment of the Saint John Cathedral community.
- We believe that the education and character formation of children is best accomplished through a partnership of home, school and church.
- Children learn best in a safe, caring environment and in small classes where they can receive the individual attention they need.
- We believe an excellent education prepares a child academically, spiritually and socially.
- At Saint John Orthodox Christian School, children are encouraged to give back to the community as well as receive from it.
