Welcome to St. John’s!

Thank you for your interest in St. John's. The admissions season for the 2024-25 academic year is open! We will offer several opportunities throughout the fall and winter for you to take a closer look at St. John's and to get to know our community. If you have a child who is currently 3 years old please submit an Inquiry Form and schedule a tour of our Primary Division to see if we are the right independent school for your family. Applications are also currently being accepted for our entry year, which is Pre-K(4). Early applicants will be given priority in scheduling assessments. Inquiries and applicants for all other grades will be notified of group tour dates this fall. 

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.

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. 

Contacting our office is the first step of an amazing journey for your child(ren) and we look forward to hearing from you.

Go Eagles!
