Middle School

Welcome

The Middle School Experience

An education at Saint John's extends far beyond the four walls of a classroom and into what we call "The Saint John's Experience". 

Young men who attend Saint John's learn in so many ways beyond textbooks and classrooms. Our dedicated faculty and staff work to meet each and every student where they are and encourage the young men in our care to be involved beyond the school day. 

Join an athletics team, debate with Model U.N., compete with our World Champion Robotics team, act in a theatrical performance, or participate in a campus ministry retreat. It is through these experiences that our young men become brothers - forming a brotherhood unique to Saint John's that will last them a lifetime. 

A Message from the Assistant Principal

Dear Prospective Middle School Families,

Thank you for your interest in the Bro. Robert Treanor, C.F.X. Middle School Division at Saint John’s High School. We are looking forward to our first year of what will now be a six-year experience for young men to grow in the tradition of the Xaverian Brothers, a tradition that has endured for more than a century. 

I’m excited to share our first major programmatic update as the first quarter of the 2019-2020 school year closes. The School Model Transition Committee, comprised of representatives from each department at Saint John’s, has recently completed a thorough series of reports that will inform the development of the Middle School curriculum for grades seven and eight. I invite you to review the course descriptions on the Middle School Curriculum section of the website, where you will find important information about the classes your middle school student will take during his seventh-grade year, as well as the skills that he will develop that will poise him for success in high school.  

Through the diligent work of the faculty and staff at Saint John’s during this school year, we have drawn strong conclusions about effective ways to prepare middle school students for success during their high school years. Apart from a strong focus on academics and a variety of athletic and extracurricular offerings, students in grades seven and eight will receive explicit instruction in the core values of a Xaverian education: humility, compassion, simplicity, trust, and zeal. Through an examination of these values, students will begin to discover what it means to be a part of the Saint John’s community.  

We will continue to provide regular updates to the Middle School program as this school year continues. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you and your student as we take this first step in the journey to becoming a Saint John’s Man - a journey that starts now and lasts for a lifetime. 

Best, 

Mr. Sean Dillon
Assistant Principal, Br. Robert Treanor Division (Grades 7 & 8)
