Come Visit!

We want you to feel the St. John’s difference and take away the core essence of who we are and what we are all about. The journey through admissions will give you opportunities to speak with students, faculty, and other parents. Once your application is submitted, we begin the assessment process by collecting information on past school records as well as our own testing, which varies by grade. We will happily discuss it with you and make sure you and your child(ren) feel comfortable during the evaluation process. 

Our Mission

Private education is a gift you are giving your child(ren). Setting them up for success in their lives, we strive to spend each day preparing them for lifelong intellectual and spiritual growth. We want our students to feel nurtured as they build their own personal strong foundation. And, it is important to note, the connection extends beyond the student-teacher experience. Our families make up an important part of our community. The sense of collaboration and dedication in the St. John’s Family is a hallmark in the South Tampa community.

Go Eagles!

“We chose SJE because of its unparalleled dedication to the intellectual, emotional, and spiritual growth of its students. Each child is encouraged to reach his or her maximum potential while also learning the values of kindness and servant leadership, which mirror and reinforce the values we teach at home. Our two children are thriving at SJE, amazing us every day with what they are learning about the world and how to be a “bucket filler” in our community. As an unexpected bonus, our family as a whole has been welcomed with open arms, offering many opportunities for parents and grandparents to be involved in our children’s education and develop meaningful friendships with other SJE families.”

— Mark and Allison Campbell, Current Parents
