St. John's has provided both of my daughters a great education and a sense of community. We have loved it all including the holiday programs, culture night, fun fairs, class trips, track, basketball, volleyball, and much more. - Meg, parent of an alumna and current 8th grader

Eagle's Nest - Before & After Care
St. John’s offers before and after school care for all students enrolled at St. John’s, from Pre-School through 8th grade. Eagle’s Nest is a loving and safe environment where kids can let out some steam after a full day of school. We emphasize physical activity through outdoor play, homework time to ensure that priorities are met, and provide students with a light snack. Time is also spent in the computer lab to finish homework or to play school-approved games on our child secured-computers.
