Mission and Philosophy


St. John the Baptist Catholic School educates each child in a faith-filled environment by teaching academics, virtues, compassion, discipleship, and the Catholic faith in a JOY-filled community so each child reaches their full potential academically and spiritually. Teach-Make-Go


At St. John the Baptist Parish School, we provide a faith-filled welcoming Catholic community where students are given a foundation to become life-long learners.

We seek to form disciples of Christ by building upon the following foundations of the Catholic faith:

  • Prayer and worship
  • Sacramental life
  • Virtues education
  • Stewardship
  • Parent and parishioner partnership

Recognizing individual differences, we provide a quality education through differentiation and best practices. We encourage our students to find success by:

  • Mastery of academic skills in core subject areas
  • Integration of 21st Century learning skills including cooperative learning, technology, and STEM throughout curriculum
  • Develop an appreciation of the fine arts and world language
  • Provide an array of extra-curricular activities and learning opportunities

We live out our JOY (JESUS-OTHERS-YOU)  philosophy through our core values.

  • JESUS – Reliance on prayer by developing your relationship with JESUS through prayer and worship.
  • OTHERS – Generosity of spirit in service, gratitude, recognizing the gifts of others, sharing, and JOY.
  • You – To Grow through knowledge, faith, virtue, community, respect for ourselves and others.
