Welcome to St. John Regional School
Founded in 1888, St. John Regional School is a private, Catholic elementary school serving students from pre-kindergarten through grade 8. Our goal is to develop students in a Faith-filled community into responsible citizens, with a strong academic foundation and a passion for learning.
A Catholic School Advantage
The goal of a Catholic education is to help children mature into moral and caring people of God. Students are encouraged to recognize the presence of Christ in themselves and others. Not all of our students are Catholic, but all share experiences of faith and values. At St. John’s, we offer:
Daily prayer and religion class
Community service both in and out of school
School Masses and prayer services
Rules of behavior that produce quiet classrooms conducive to learning the basis of the Christian principle of respecting each and every individual
St. John Regional School offers a rigorous curriculum using continually updated textbooks and materials. We provide our students with a strong foundation in the following areas:
Math – Our Houghton -Mifflin Go-Math Math program focuses on student success through incremental development and continued review emphasizing both concepts and basic operations assisted with online support
Science – Hands-on experiments, microscopes & field trips
Computer Technology – We put computers into the hands of our students to support the various academic disciplines
