At Home and Virtual Event
Celebrate Saint John’s Prep at Home!
Please join us for our Grand Tour of Nations fundraiser on April 24, 2021. Proceeds from Grand Tour provide vital funding for student scholarships and programs. You can support our school by donating auction items, bidding in the auction, making a cash gift and playing our raffle from the comfort of your home!
Join us for a virtual program at 6:00 pm (CST) will include drawing the winner of our $10,000 Cash Raffle! While we aren’t getting together in large groups this year, we are encouraging families to get together and celebrate our school community. We hope you will come together with a comfortable group of friends to enjoy a meal, watch the program and support our school. Our committee is working on fun activities and ideas to make this year’s event extra-special. We’ll share details in the coming weeks!
A Virtual Event Provides Essential Support
While we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, we are optimistic about our future and the support of our families, alumni and friends. Our commitment to providing a premier education in the Catholic Benedictine tradition has not waivered and we are committed to providing a financial accessible education for all of our students. Our commitment to form our students into leaders prepared for lives of purpose, service, and achievement is perhaps more important now than ever. We believe our students someday will be the scientists working to develop treatments or cures for diseases, the doctors treating those in critical care, the educational leaders working to ensure that students are having their academic and emotional needs met, and the leaders of local communities or businesses working to bring people together to meet crises head on. Your support makes an impact not only for their Prep experience today but for their and our future tomorrow.
Though we cannot be together in person, this promises to be a wonderful opportunity to gather as a Prep School community from the East and West Coasts, from the Canadian border to the Gulf of Mexico and all around the world, to make a difference in the lives of our students.

We appreciate the stability your support gives to our school, faculty, staff and students. We are grateful for the tremendous support our families, alumni and local business have provided for Grand Tour of Nations. It takes the support of families, alumni, and friends to prepare our students for the remarkable lives they will live. Without you, none of this would be possible!
Above all stay healthy and safe,

Save the Date! October 1-3, 2021
We remain hopeful that conditions surrounding the pandemic will improve and allow us to celebrate Reunion 2021 with everyone. Please save the date for October 1-3, 2021 for reunion weekend! It is our plan to welcome back all those who would’ve celebrated reunions in 2020 as well as those who will celebrate reunions in 2021. We have spaces on campus reserved for events and we are working with members of the Classes of 1970 and 1971 to plan meals and activities.
