About Our School

Principal's Message 

Welcome to St. John the Apostle Catholic School where students receive an innovative, faith-based education. The staff is proud to partner with parents/guardians and St. John the Apostle Parish in the education of our students. Through a spirit of community and cooperation, we strive to educate the whole child, spiritually, academically, socially and physically. We are committed to preparing our students for the workplace of tomorrow through an explicit connection between literacy, numeracy and the global competencies. 

On behalf of the entire staff, I invite you to visit our school. We are proud of our students, our programs, and the entire school community. Come experience St. John the Apostle Catholic School!
