Welcome to Saint John the Baptist Catholic School,
Home of the Saints
In the Fall of 2018, it was decided to choose a nickname for the school to assist in establishing a unique identity for our school. After two rounds of majority voting, “Saints” became the new nickname. Four Seasons Screen Printing of Marathon helped us create the logo, which has been used in our school newsletters, on school letterhead, and for school clothing orders.
In the Fall of 2019, a plan was developed to increase our presence on social media to continue promoting both School and Parish items on the joint Facebook page. The Saint John Saints hashtag (#SaintJohnSaints) was created . Please check out our Facebook page for the Saint John Saints.
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.
