Our Philosophy

The ministry of Catholic education recognized each student as a child of God, unique in his or her talents. Each member of St. John the Baptist Catholic School is a respected and valued individual of the community and is encouraged to share his or her gifts.

The Catholic Church, through the ministry of the Catholic school, teaches Gospel Values. Children of all faiths learn to respect the morals, principles, and ideals of a Catholic education and have opportunities to experience care and concern for themselves, families, classmates, staff, and all of God's creation.

The needs of the whole child are addressed through a Catholic education using a variety of strategies that develop the spiritual, academic, cultural, social, emotional, physical, and artistic facets of each individual. The school, partnered with the parents as primary educators, supports each child in the process of growing while developing an appreciation for lifelong learning and service to others.
