The study of religion in Episcopal schools is an academic subject.
At St. John’s, we believe that how a student is academically engaged in and outside the classroom has a direct impact on
their level of preparation and inclination towards lifelong learning. That’s why how we teach is equally as important
as what we teach. By stimulating a student’s interest and commitment to subject mastery, we provide an academically vigorous experience for continued academic success and developing skills to thrive in life.
The cornerstone of a child’s experience, our curriculum, is focused on the development of the whole child. Our faculty and staff, all subject matter experts, are dedicated to interdisciplinary studies to create a program that honors tradition and fosters innovation. Visit one of our classrooms on any given day and you’ll see meaningful learning, experiences crafted in age and developmentally appropriate ways that energize students through wonder, inquiry, and challenge.
