LETTER TO THE ST. JOHN’S FAMILY
67% of students hold a B average or higher. 92% of our graduates will go on to attend higher education.
We make it a priority to help students develop a standard of dress and grooming. We polish their social skills and graces while setting strong examples of morals and ethics.
We teach students spiritual values as a guideline for living and interacting with others, and how those values are reflected through actions that become their way of life.
Each student is required to participate in physical fitness, as well as a varsity sport or extracurricular activity. From basketball to marching band, there are numerous activities from which to choose.
My son attends St John’s Military School in Salina, Kansas. This school has saved my son’s life and opened for him doors that he might never have had open for him. St John’s gave him the base on which he was able to realize his true ability. It increased his self confidence and self worth. The faculty and staff have been outstanding. It is truly evident that they all care about these boys. He has been exposed to an atmosphere that instills courage, discipline and self worth. The boys support each other and encourage each other to do their best. This was one of the most difficult decisions that my husband and I have ever had to make, but I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. My only regret is not sending him sooner.
The 2016-2017 school year at St. John’s was truly an amazing year in so many ways. It was a year of significant accomplishment for both the Cadet Corps and, as a result, the school. Not only did St. John’s receive a perfect score during the annual JROTC Inspection, but we experienced a year of outstanding academic performance by the Cadet Corps, a decrease in Conduct Reports and the acceptance of most of our seniors in colleges of their choice. Finally, it is important to note that 90% of our Cadets who were invited to return for the 2017-2018 school year have re-enrolled. There is no private school in the country that could match this re-enrollment rate. It indicates a high level of confidence by our Cadets and their families that their experience at St. John’s has resulted in better academic performance, development of behavioral traits necessary for success, self-confidence and respect for others. Many of our graduating cadets started their education with St. John’s in the 6th or 7th grade. In short, St. John’s will continue to become an important part of the life of each cadet as well as his entire family.
To provide young men the opportunity to grow Spiritually, Morally, Intellectually, and Physically.
St. John’s Military School provides a high quality education in an environment that values academic effort and achievement, eliminates distractions, and recognizes the differences regarding how boys learn. Equal emphasis is placed on providing a challenging college preparatory curriculum and providing the resources necessary to assist students requiring assistance.
The military model at St. John’s allows for focus upon, and development of, character traits and life skills that contribute greatly to a cadet’s future success. Leadership, citizenship, integrity, and self-confidence are all part of the daily learning that occurs here.
