Saint John’s Preparatory School educates our students for a lifetime of learning, leadership, and service in a global society, celebrating our Catholic Benedictine tradition.
An Arts and Sciences World School in the Catholic Benedictine Tradition
Since its founding in 1857, Saint John’s Preparatory School has provided exceptional education in the Catholic Benedictine tradition. Prep has continuously dedicated itself to both educational development and personal formation, seeking to prepare our students for lives of purpose, service, and achievement.
The Benedictine values and wisdom tradition that defined our founding continue to animate the soul and practice of Saint John’s Prep. We strive to “listen with the ear of the heart,” as Saint Benedict directs us in the Rule, to the needs of all members of our school community. Benedictine education calls for a lively interplay between rigorous thinking and the development of practices for a purpose-filled life. Though 1,500 years old, it remains a vital, living tradition.
We prize and prioritize community at Saint John’s Prep, the awareness that each of us is not only an individual but also part of God’s entire creation. Community formation provides opportunities to embrace difference and provide mutual support. Shaped by our Benedictine values, the educational experience at Prep sets its sights on the transformation of mind and heart. We encourage an active sense of belonging in our school and empathic engagement with the world around us.
