Our PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT: We, the Administrators and staff of Saint John the Baptist Catholic School firmly commit to the vision and message of the Gospel values exemplified by Christ. We recognize the religious, ethnic, social and economic diversity of our youth. With the parents/guardians as the primary educators of their children, and with the untiring efforts of the staff as facilitators of learning, we strive to build an authentic faith community in the entire institution. Our concerted effort, inspired by the strong collaboration of the parents/guardians, administration, staff, parish and school board, enables us to facilitate and nurture the holistic growth of each student as we provide varied opportunities for the fullest self-realization of the individual’s highest potential.
