Built on a rich history and tradition of excellence, St. John Catholic School has been Lowndes County’s clear choice for a quality education for over 80 years. We follow the example given to us by Jesus Christ remembering that He is the ever-present teacher in our classrooms, the model of our faculty, and the inspiration for our students. We strive and are committed to high expectations and achievement in all areas of spiritual, moral, intellectual, physical, social and emotional growth.

“I look forward to working with you and your child(ren) this year. If you ever have any questions, please reach out to me. Together we can help our Eagles Soar to New Heights!”
