Philosophy of Education


St. John Elementary School is one segment of our total parish ministry. Our goal is to assist parents in their primary role as educators of their children.

Academically, we offer a sequential learning continuum providing all students with essential skills to meet the challenges of today as children, and the challenges of tomorrow as adults.

As a school family, we assist in the spiritual, academic, emotional and social growth of our children. Working with parents, the teachers and staff bring a sense of ministry to their work and make every effort to model the care and concern of Christ for His Church in the classroom setting. At the same time, we challenge each student to reach his/her full academic potential. We provide daily opportunities to grow in faith and to become friends with those who share our values, our love of God, and our concern for others.
