The Origin of Our School
Through the foresight and efforts of an Episcopal Bishop, the Right Reverend Elisha Smith Thomas, and a group of prominent Salina businessmen, St. John’s opened in 1887. These men recognized the need for a disciplined educational and living environment for young boys and established a military school to be operated under church auspices.
In the more than 125 years since, St. John’s Military School has helped raise young men into outstanding leaders.
