Academics

St. John's offers a traditional, classical education with a 21st century twist.

We still emphasize the basic building blocks of learning: phonics, grammar, multiplication facts, arithmetic skills, vocabulary words, Latin, Shakespeare, and Beowulf.  But we also teach our students how to use this knowledge base to analyze and synthesize, how to apply this information to unfamiliar situations, and how to think creatively and critically.  We know we are preparing them for careers and fields that do not yet exist, so we provide them with the background to be creative thinkers, with the educational support structure to make gaining any future skill easier.

During a recent survey conducted by an independent consulting firm, 99% of current parents said they enrolled their child at St. John’s because of the quality of education, and 93% said it was based on the quality of the teachers.  St. John's strives for and achieves the goal of having an excellent teacher in every classroom.

Through the years, the School has maintained accreditation by the Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS) and Florida Kindergarten Council (FKC), and memberships in the National Association of Episcopal Schools (NAES), National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), Bay Area Association of Independent Schools (BAAIS), Educational Records Bureau (ERB), Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD), Council for Support and Advancement of Education (CASE), National Association of Student Councils (NASC), National Junior Honor Society (NJHS), National Junior Classical League (NJCL), Mu Alpha Theta Mathematics League, and the Florida West Coast Athletic League (FWCL).
