Dining Services

While Prep School students do have access to dining services at Saint John’s University, we highly recommend that students bring a lunch from home when possible. Students will have access to the Prep School snack bar for pre-packaged food items (sandwiches, wraps, salads, etc.). There will not be hot meal options to begin the school year.
