At St. John's Catholic School, we provide a rich and broad educational program to assist families in their important role in educating their children.
It is our goal to support families in faith education and to nurture the development of children to their full potential in an atmosphere of Christian love, care, and responsibility.
We value the support of parents, alumni and the community in a wide variety of ways and offer in return our skills and commitment as Catholic educators.
We believe that children are not only gifted with intelligence, but that they have also received from God the great gift of free will, the awesome gifts that makes it possible for them to choose what their lives will be...on them depends the future of the race; they are the hope of their families, the hope of the civil and Christian society, the nation perpetrating itself. They are, indeed, heaven foreseeing its elect.".
