St. John Academy was founded in 1954 to offer quality Catholic education to parish children. St. John Academy continues to provide children in pre-school through eighth grade with a Catholic education rooted in a rich tradition of academic excellence and spiritual formation, captured by the schools motto, Faith, Knowledge, and Joy. By Faith, children are led beyond themselves to entrust their formation to God. By forming the entire child, we impart the Knowledge for both intellectual and spiritual growth. The Mission of St. John Academy is manifested in genuine Christian Joy – rooted in the Sacraments, self-sacrifice, charity, and service to others.

The Extended Day program includes activities to develop individual growth through indoor and outdoor games. Playtime in the gym is offered in the event of inclement weather.
