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.

Saint John’s Prep is bringing the Brothers Grimm to the stage with an epic fairytale about wishes, family and the choices we make!
James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece… and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.

The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

One of Sondheim’s most popular works, Into the Woods is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy. Designers will especially enjoy highlighting the fantastical elements of this magical word.
