Student Visiting Days

Once an application is submitted to St. John’s, we will schedule a “Shadow Day” for your child. Students will spend time in their current grade and will have a current student guide for the day. During the prospective student’s visit, they will have an opportunity to participate in a typical school day. The school will complete an assessment of the student’s skills and abilities during the day.

Students applying to enter Preschool/3, Preschool/4 or Kindergarten will be asked to attend a Saturday session on February 10, 2018.

Among the many great qualities of St. John’s, the fact that each student is greeted with a handshake at the front door each morning, and called by name, is very empowering.  My child knows the names of every student in the whole school.  This speaks very highly of the camaraderie the school emphasizes.  ~ Current Lower School Parent
