While the mission of St. Johns Country Day School remains very much the same as when our School was founded in 1953, education and the School itself are changing rapidly. We know that graduates of tomorrow need a whole host of skills and experiences that didn't exist nearly seventy years ago. That's why St. Johns is redefining the college preparatory experience, helping students cultivate the skills they need to be prepared for the colleges of today and the 21st century workforce beyond. St. Johns' goal is to develop students who seek solutions, accept responsibility, and create collaboration.

This school has some of the most caring and supportive teachers. Sometimes a coach will even text and communicate with students--certainly going above and beyond.

Leading the way in technology, many upgrades to a beautiful and secluded campus. Teachers who care and parents are encouraged to get involved. Comes with a price tag, but you get what you pay for. Awesome college counseling services for my children. Highly recommend this school to parents and students who want the best!
