 Get to Know St. John’s Better

There are many ways parents and cadets discover St. John’s. Often it starts with a call or a referral from a friend, which leads to a visit to our beautiful, historic, military school campus located in Salina, Kansas. Here, we meet with you to learn about your son, his needs and aspirations, and assist in determining if St. John’s is the best solution for your family. You are provided with a guided tour of the campus, and given the opportunity to meet with our staff, faculty and current cadets.

What previous Cadets have to say

Throughout my four years at SJMS, I have learned honesty, dignity, pride, responsibility, loyalty, and, leadership. SJMS has provided me with the opportunity to grow physically, mentally, and spiritually. Without my attendance to SJMS, I don’t know if I would have graduated high school, or be admitted to the college of my dreams, Colorado State University. Go RAMS!
David Schmaus, Colorado State University
If I had not attended St. John’s, I still would have grown as a person. But not to this level. The school multiplied those changes tenfold. When I came to St. John’s in 2010, I felt like a boy without a plan. Now as a graduate, I feel like I have matured and gained the tools to be successful in life. Granted, it was never easy. St. John’s throws a lot at you. School, sports, the military side of things, separation from friends and family. It’s not easy. Sometimes it was the last place I would have rather been. But it was worth it. I’ve learned things that many kids won’t pick up until college, or later. Time management, responsibility, pressure to succeed, things of that nature. To the parents of prospective cadets, it is a challenge, for both your son and yourself. But with a little effort on his part, and a little faith in the school on yours, St. John’s can be the best choice you ever make for your son. I know my parents made the right choice. I’ll be forever grateful for them, and the staff and faculty of this great school.
