Visit Us

Teacher holding class with students outside on our 14-acre campus.
The best way to get a sense of our school community is to visit us. We offer personal tours of campus as well as several open house dates. For the most comprehensive overview of the St. John’s experience, we encourage you to attend one of our Open House events. At an Open House program, you will tour the school, see the classrooms in action, and get detailed information about our curriculum. You’ll also have the opportunity to interact with teachers, the Director of Admissions and our Head of School.

Announcing Our New Head of School

Jun 20, 2014
Ms. Tiffany Nichols, Head of School

After a thoughtful and collaborative Head search process, the SJPDS Board of Trustees, with the support of our Vestry, has called Ms. Tiffany Nichols as the new Head of St. John's Parish Day School. 

Ms. Nichols was chosen for her dedication to St. John's, her passion about making SJPDS a center of excellence, and for how well she embodies the characteristics included in the leadership typology set forth by the Board of Trustees and Head Search Advisory and Steering Committees - a leader who builds and facilitates teams; shepherds responsible finances; thinks strategically and entrepreneurially and; educates innovatively and thoughtfully.
