Educating the ones whom Jesus Calls


St. John Catholic School is a vibrant community made up of families, teachers, and citizens who believe that a Catholic education is essential in forming children who love God and who will excel in life.  We provide a foundation to assist students in realizing their potentials using the academic and spiritual disciplines.

Our School creates a family-like environment based on care, communication, and Christ.  Our unique classes are sized to allow for highly individualized attention.  Students use resources that keep them engaged and learning beyond established state and national standards. Our teachers utilize the best assessment practices, curriculum resources and teaching strategies to optimize student growth.  Our students rank among the top private schools nationally, a benchmark for which we expect nothing less.  Our families are prominent on campus, creating an important link from school to home.  St. John Catholic School is able to take advantages in optimal curriculum and technological innovation to continually provide the best for our students with the support of five local parishes and organizations such as Gulf Coast State College, Florida State University, local Military bases, and Bay County businesses.

We are excited to share what is happening, and we invite you to come see for yourself!  Have your students spend a day on our campus, and you will find a happy place, busy with learning from preschool to eighth grade.   All of our classrooms are filled with technology and each year we introduce new advancements.  Our curriculum helps provide a rigorous foundation to support advance growth across the board. Our STEM curriculum directly correlates with local industry by focusing on real-word engineering applications such as robotics.  Our students utilize the actual software used by engineers at the top, local research facilities!

This is just the beginning of what is in store for St. John Catholic School!  We are proud to announce the addition of Geometry as a compliment to our Algebra I program and various electives, including marching band, to highlight the strengths and interest of our middle school students.

St. John Catholic School is proud to be the only private school in Bay County that accepts the McKay Scholarship, Step Up for Students & PLSA, Scholarships, and Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) vouchers.

Thank you for taking an interest in our school.  We look forward to meeting with you!

Thank you,

Wilma Wilson, Principal
