Why We Give

"I am part of the second graduating class at St.John's and I can very much say that St.John's has helped who I am as a young adult.  All of the faculty and staff are warm and inviting, and truly there to nurture your child's learning experience. This is by a long run one of the best private elementary education institutions in Maryland." -- Hannah Grace Richardson
We believe there is a spark within every child. It is our job as teachers, administrators, family and community leaders to foster that spark - nurture it, fuel it and be the catalyst for a lifelong love of learning. 
Parents who chose St. John’s make an intentional decision to provide their children with the finest education possible while they are young. They know that our students are well prepared academically to attend the best middle schools as well as meet the challenges of college and beyond.
