Misson Statement

Saint John Academy was founded in 1954 to offer quality Catholic education to parish children. Saint John Academy continues to provide children in pre-school through eighth grade with a Catholic education rooted in rich tradition of academic excellence and spiritual formation, captured by the school’s motto, “Fides, Scientia, et Guadium.” By Faith, children are led beyond themselves to entrust their formation to God.

The Mission of Saint John Academy is manifested in genuine Christian Joy– rooted in the Sacraments, self-sacrifice, charity, and service to others.
