Philosophy: 

“St. John’s provides both our educators and students with important freedoms and opportunities in developing the whole child.  Along with developing academic excellence, our fundamental objective remains helping students to grow in faith and a deeper understanding of God’s Word.  As a result, we embrace the diverse and unique talents of each student, while providing intentional opportunities for spiritual, academic, physical, emotional and social growth.  Our students learn in the classroom, on the court, and through the dynamic relationships built with our faculty.”
