Where Great Promise Becomes Outstanding Character

On behalf of the Saint John's High School community, welcome to the admissions department at Saint John's. I am excited to introduce you to our all-boys’ school and show you why Catholic school represents a uniquely supportive and rigorous learning environment for young men.
Saint John’s remains true to our Catholic and Xaverian tradition while providing students with a strong liberal arts and sciences education that embraces 21st-century ideas about how boys learn best. We give young men the foundation, vision, and skills that will pave the way for success in college, their careers, and their personal lives. In the process, we help shape boys of promise into men of character who consider each other brothers for life.
The Saint John’s experience is both life-changing and lifelong. The balance of tradition and vision at Saint John's distinguishes our school from other private high schools. I encourage you to come meet with us, take a tour of campus, and apply. If you have any further questions about Saint John's or the admissions process, please feel free to contact me at jsmith@stjohnshigh.org

Xaverian Education

Boys of Promise. Men of Character. Brothers for Life.

As a Xaverian Brothers Sponsored School, Saint John’s High School is rooted in the rich traditions of Roman Catholic education. Our mission is to support the moral and spiritual development of young men, preparing them not only for success in college and in life – but also for meaningful lives in the service of God. At Saint John’s, we welcome boys from all faith traditions into a community that is intellectually challenging, emotionally supportive, and committed to an honest investigation of faith, meaning, and service. Thanks to the diversity of our student body, each boy learns how to cultivate his relationship with God, himself, and others, and gains a deep appreciation for the wide variety of spiritual and moral expressions that unite us in our shared humanity.
Our belief in the benefits of Catholic education fuels our commitment to developing the whole person. Students learn essential lessons of a Christian life in the classroom, on the athletic field, in extracurricular activities, and by joining together with other students in prayer and reflection. Saint John’s boys have earned a well-deserved reputation as respectful, upstanding members of a community that extends from the Worcester area to the wider world.
We build enduring relationships to foster outstanding character and achievement in our students. The persistent devotion and commitment of our faculty helps ensure that no student slips through the cracks, and that every boy in our school receives the attention and support he needs to succeed.
High expectations are balanced by care and compassion, giving our students the confidence to rise to their highest level of academic, athletic, artistic, and spiritual achievement. As a result, Saint John’s graduates advance in the workplace, serve as pillars in their community, and live as good and honorable husbands, fathers, friends, brothers, and citizens.
