SJA gives students a VERY solid academic foundation while teaching the whole child- nurturing each student along the way. Graduates are very successful and capable of handling advanced course loads in high school.

My son is in kindergarten at St. John's and he loves it! He's so happy and has learned so much, academically and beyond. The teachers and staff are so warm and welcoming. Everyone knows everyone. It's such a lovely, tight knit community of families.
