For over 120 years a Saint John’s education has guided young men in their intellectual, spiritual, social, moral, athletic, and aesthetic development. With the addition of a middle school, we can reach more young men earlier in their educational journey and uniquely prepare them not only for the rigors of our college preparatory curriculum, but also for lives of meaning and purpose. Research shows that schools with a broad span of grade levels present opportunities that do not exist in traditional middle school models. In a seventh to twelfth grade environment, middle school students can better aspire to who they will become by observing and interacting with high school students.
Having high school students together on campus with middle school students presents exciting opportunities for both groups. For middle school students, the benefits include having additional role models both academically and personally. For high school students, the presence of middle school students on campus provides additional leadership opportunities and enhances our existing culture of mentorship across grade levels that helps students form lifelong bonds of brotherhood.
As part of our community, students in the middle school division will have access to state-of-the-art innovative learning spaces, newly updated athletic facilities, and cutting-edge, STEM, theater and arts spaces.
