Making Your Decision

We know that Catholic Education is an investment in your child's future and we want you to know all of the reasons that we think it's a fantastic choice! You have questions, we have answers... and there are many ways to learn about all we have to offer! We welcome you to become a member of our St. John the Baptist School Family!

Sunday Open House is on the Calendar for January 27th at 12pm, centered in the Gym. There will be a FREE Pancake Breakfast, STREAM Demonstrations, Student Presentations and Interactive Tours! Please visit our Open House Events page or our School Facebook Event Page for more information!

March Open House and Shadow Week are always scheduled in March and is a great time to come and tour the school with other interested parents; this year, Shadow Week is March 4-8. Families can come in to meet with the Principal and see the School in progress the day your Child comes in to Shadow. ANY Grades are open to Shadowing, so come and see all we have to offer - from our Family atmosphere, our creatively challenging classrooms, to the home-like feel with flexible seating in many of our rooms!

Our Evening Open House is Thursday, March 7th at 7pm. After light refreshments, there will be a brief, informative presentation by our Principal, and the School will be open for tours by current Families!
