St. John the Evangelist Catholic School is the perfect place for your children to receive a solid, well rounded education in a caring and nurturing environment. Our faculty and staff foster excellence with high standards, strong motivation, and effective discipline within an atmosphere of caring.
Whether you are Catholic or not, SJCS should be at the top of your list when choosing a school for your children, and here’s why:
Individualized Personal Attention
With a student-to-teacher ratio of 1:10, your child will never get lost in the crowd. SJCS teachers nurture and help students grow, based on each students’ strengths and challenges and tailor programs based on where each student is in their education.
Stimulating, Demanding Education
Students in Catholic Schools score above the national average in reading, language, mathematics, science, and social studies. In many grades, the average Catholic School student is achieving at or above the top quarter of their national peers.
Commitment to the Development of the Whole Student
At SJCS, it isn’t just about grades, but the entire education and nurturing of the student through a variety of extra-curricular activities and a blend of art, music and band in the school day, which are quickly disappearing from public schools.
Students participate in fundraisers throughout the year to raise money for those in need, participate in food drives, deliver meals to members of the community and participate in other civic activities. With a focus on sharing their time, talent and treasures, students are taught that one person’s actions can make a difference in the world.
Parents in the SJCS community work together with the school to help students understand their special place in the family, the Church and society and participate in activities throughout the year and enjoy a strong community centered around student achievement.
Focus on Faith
Faith is woven into every thread of the school day and helps students balance education with spiritual immersion. An SJCS education is active in teaching a child that God is in their life, all around them and they are an instrument of God’s grace in the family, community and in the world.
