Developing the Mind, Heart and Body
The college preparatory curriculum at Saint John’s Catholic Prep is designed to meet the needs and talents of each individual student. Each student’s schedule consists of core subjects - Mathematics, Science, English, History, Philosophy, Foreign Language, and Religion. Physical Education, Computer Science, Music and Art are also required. Students may select electives in major subject areas in addition to required courses.
In order to challenge each student appropriately, and allow each student to work to his or her full potential, Saint John’s provides general academic, honors, and Advanced Placement level courses. The general academic courses are designed to strengthen skills required in a college preparatory program while the honors courses, offered in English, Mathematics, Foreign Language, Science, and Social Studies, provide progressively greater challenges and more in-depth study. Qualified students are strongly encouraged to take Advanced Placement courses offered in English, Mathematics, Science, Government, and Foreign Language. Advanced Placement courses may allow students to earn valuable college credits.
Keeping pace with technology is a priority at Saint John’s. Using Windows-based software, students develop proficiency in word-processing, managing databases, spreadsheets, and basic programming. Students have access to the Internet in the school library and computer lab as a supplemental resource for research.
