St. John's Episcopal Parish Day School St. John's Episcopal Parish Day School

Providing academic excellence in a nurturing Christian environment. Those are the principles upon which St. John’s was founded in 1951, and they are the same principles that still stand more than a half-century later.

As an outreach of St. John’s Episcopal Church, our School not only has a long-established reputation for a rigorous core curriculum that prepares students for the demands of secondary education, higher education and beyond, but it also weaves in the strong spiritual and moral foundation needed to help guide young minds throughout their daily lives.

To prepare students for life-long personal effectiveness, St. John’s maintains high goals and standards for their academic and behavioral performance. Our School aims to instill the lasting habits of learning and intellectual growth through the development of character-building life skills and qualities such as strong self-discipline, a conscientious work ethic both at school and at home, self respect and confidence, personal accountability, leadership, effective organization and study skills, and the respect of peers.

A distinguished faculty and administration create a culture of learning, and engage students in meaningful dialogue to forge life-long learners.

With a rich and textured history, St. John’s provides an unrivaled experience that begins in pre-kindergarten and continues through eighth grade, shaping future generations to solve tomorrow’s challenges.
