Mission, Purposes & Objectives

The Saint John's Mission Statement

A Saint John’s Catholic education is rooted in the commitment of the Xaverian Brothers to bring Christ to life in young men. Our students develop a love of learning through a college preparatory academic and co-curricular program embracing both tradition and innovation. Saint John's fosters the formation of the whole person: spiritual, social, physical, intellectual, creative, and aesthetic.

We call our community to live out the Xaverian values of zeal, humility, simplicity, trust, and compassion. Saint John’s creates an atmosphere of interdependence, respect, inclusion, and personal responsibility in a community where we mutually help, encourage, and edify each other to develop relationships that transcend time.  We aim to send forth young men who will use their God-given talents to transform their community, their nation, and their world.

In the tradition of its Xaverian founders, Saint John's High School is committed to providing opportunities for families in need, students from a diversity of backgrounds, and for the poor and marginalized.
