St. John the Baptist Catholic School provides a Christ-centered education which prepares each student spiritually, intellectually, and socially to make a meaningful contribution to society. In partnership with family, Church, and community, we provide a Catholic education of the highest quality.
It is our mission that St. John’s students take an active role in their faith formation by respectfully participating in the Eucharist at Mass; pray as an individual, a class, and as a school; charitably complete service projects and contribute to the good of our society; and prayerful study of the Bible and the teachings of the Church.
It is our mission to commit to maintaining student-centered classrooms where children actively engage in the learning process by performing authentic assessments which reflect real-life experiences. Current curriculum and emphasis on state standards will ensure that students are well-rounded and independent learners.
It is our mission to provide St. John’s students a faith-filled, meaningful education where they can excel to the best of their abilities. Each student will be respected as an individual and will be afforded the tools to be a lifelong learner, a productive member of our dynamic society, and a young adult Christian who lives with Jesus in their heart.
