ENVIRONMENT & CURRICULUM

St. John Catholic Middle School offers a learning environment that motivates personal excellence. This is done through small class sizes that enhance the learning experience and prepare students to meet high expectations. The academics themselves meet and exceed Georgia performance standards. Along with in-class teaching, throughout the year students will have off-campus learning experiences.

‚ÄčThe curriculum in the middle school offers a weekly, year-long engagement in visual arts, foreign language, band, and STEM. Also, humanities classes are taught to promote cross-curricular learning of language, literature, religion, geography, and history. The goal is to provide an education that applies to modern times. This includes 21st-century science, math, and arts curriculum that infuses student-centered STEM applications.
