1. Variable Tuition
Saint John’s Prep doesn’t have a set tuition. Rather, we offer a range of tuition levels to match a variety of unique financial situations – we call it variable tuition. Our goal is to continue to make Saint John’s Prep education accessible for a diverse range of families.

Variable tuition is a need-based tuition assistance program. Our variable tuition program allows families to apply for reduced tuition for grades 6-12, making an education at Saint John’s Prep affordable for qualified students and their families.

2. Small Class Sizes
Students and parents both love our student-teacher ratio of 9:1. This shows that we value having a large, varied faculty to provide individualized attention to students. Students benefit from additional one-on-one time, and fewer distractions in the classroom.

Through small class sizes, diverse experiences along with devoted staff and parents, we’re proud to say 98% of our seniors go on to four-year colleges! Along with that, the average Saint John’s Prep student’s ACT score is 28.3 for the class of 2017, far above the national average of 21.
