For nearly half a century, St. John’s Parish Day School in Ellicott City, MD, has been providing the highest quality Episcopal education for children.  We educate children ages 3 through Grade 5 with a stimulating and challenging academic curriculum in a socially and economically diverse community.  By creating a safe and nurturing environment for students to grow and to learn, we help them use their full potential and individual gifts.

At St. John’s, we provide an atmosphere that fosters spiritual grounding in the Christian faith and Episcopal tradition with respect for the dignity and beliefs of every human being.  We provide an open, affirming, and inclusive community.

We promote the concepts of responsible global citizenship and active stewardship for the natural world, and we celebrate our status as a Maryland Green School.  Our innovative curriculum and methodology, as well as our exceptional care and nurturing of every student, ensure that our graduates will go on to attend the best independent and public schools in the region.

  • Spiritual growth through faith formation
  • The preservation and celebration of childhood
