St John The Baptist School

  • In 1893, the Sisters of Notre Dame opened St. John the Baptist School to educate the children of the parish.
  • Today, St. John's continues to provide a quality Catholic education for students in Pre-Kindergarten through grade eight from our Parish and several other North Shore Communities.
  • As a parent at St. John's you are in a unique position to really get involved in your child's education.
  • All families are required to donate fifteen hours of their time each school year.
  • Families are urged to put some of these required hours into committees that are formed to school events.
  • Parents are able to fulfill this requirement in a variety of areas.
  • We welcome you to take an active role, not only in your child's future, but also the future of St. John the Baptist School.
