Saint John’s Prep Named Best Catholic School in Minnesota

SJP cited among the top 25 Catholic schools in the United States &
the #1 STEM school in Stearns County

With so much news today dominated by issues ranging from challenging to divisive to outright tragic, it is sometimes easy to lose track of our need to celebrate the many good and wonderful events – small and large – that happen around us daily.

We are thrilled to announce that we were recognized by Niche this week as the best Catholic high school in Minnesota in their 2022 Best School Rankings! We also were cited among the top 25 Catholic schools in the United States (a list that included 1,139 schools), in the top 5% of Best College Prep Private High Schools in America, and in the top 10% of Best Schools for STEM in America (a list that included more than 8,000 public and private schools). Prep was recognized as the #1 STEM school in Stearns County and #2 in the state for Best College Prep High Schools in Minnesota.

Much like the US News rankings of colleges, Niche annually ranks thousands of secondary schools around the country using a combination of survey data it collects from its users and school data collected by the U.S. Department of Education. Prep consistently has ranked among the top secondary schools in Minnesota, but our rankings now place us among the very best schols in the state and the country.

Our ranking as a top performing school reflects the commitment, aspirations, talents, and skills of the students, families, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends who collectively bring this remarkable place to life each day. This is our moment to be Prep Proud – and we think it’s worthy of celebration!

We are deeply grateful for your continued support of Saint John’s Prep!
