St. John the Baptist Catholic School is dedicated to the Christian formation of youth.
It offers students the opportunity to develop their full intellectual, spiritual, physical, and emotional potential through educational and religious experiences.
We endeavor to do so through instruction in the Catholic tradition, the gospels, and academics " in an environment that inspires self-discipline, self-respect, and self-confidence, while demanding academic competence and service to others as modeled by Jesus Christ.

St. John the Baptist Catholic School has an excellent academic program and an amazing community. I have three boys currently in the lower grades in the school. I have had such a positive experience with the teachers helping make accommodations for our one son with ADHD. The principal is top-notch allowing the teachers to pursue their passions in the classroom and running a tight ship. The parent community is very active and supportive.
