Academic Exploration

At Saint John’s Prep, we’re proud to teach to a diverse group of motivated students while providing an innovative learning experience with a focus on college preparation. Whether it’s our 6-8th grade middle school program with the curriculum unified across subjects, or the IB Diploma Programme in our Upper School, the global experiences and background of our faculty, or the diversity of where our students come from, you’ll find a global perspective throughout your day. By learning in a Catholic/Benedictine spiritual environment, our students develop compassion and understanding of their world and themselves. Our small class sizes mean our students receive individual attention and our teachers have the flexibility to challenge students to achieve beyond their potential. Classroom discussions engage students in ways that give them an international perspective, lead them to embrace diversity, and develop their cross-cultural competency.

We are proud of our innovative curriculum and outstanding faculty. We are confident you will discover Saint John’s Prep is a unique environment to prepare you for entering the college of your choice and to become a life-long learner.
