This school is a new hope for many families, including us. My shy kid blossomed there and smiling every morning going there! What makes it unique: - K-12, which allows kids to build life-long relationship with each other and their wonderful Teachers - Small classes, which feels more like private tutoring system. Teachers have ability to practice personal approach and offer more attention to every child personally - Extremely high level of classical education - we as parents are endlessly impressed by academic program in both science and humanities - Teachers are extraordinary both personally and academically. Many of them have dedicated their lives to children and to this school. Two years in the row St. John s teachers are being awarded Award for Teaching Excellence by the Herbst Foundation! - Christian values are being seeded at early age and grow with children - Multicultural Orthodox Christian community is enriching life experience for every child at St. John's: you will meet Orthodox families from pretty much every continent - Extremely warm, loving, caring atmosphere - Great lunch program!! - Price is reasonable for such level of education and teacher involvement. THANK YOU!

The children from this school are active in the broader community volunteering and giving back. This is a community building school. I see the students giving back to my neighborhood. The children visibly love their school. That speaks a lot for the type of school this is. Glad to be a neighbor.

This is a one of a kind school. This school is dedicated to building the whole child; mind, soul, and body. I'd never consider working at another school. The children here are exposed to the ancient and sure foundations of a classical and Christian civilization. The children learn not to be slaves of the present but inheritors of a great heritage.

Great school! Excellent teachers, challenging academic programs!!! Children don't want to leave school at the end of the day! It feels like home at St. John's.

We found this school after leaving 2 previous private school. My family found that there is no better academics and qualified teacher than the ones at St. John's. This school is truely like a second family that has my childs best interest at heart.

French, Latin, Ancient Greek, Dickens, Bronte, Austin and the list goes on. Yes, the facts do speak for themselves!

I like St.John s Orthodox Academy as a parent because this school has the followings: Orthodox religious instruction. Off-site opportunities for educational and cultural enrichment such as field trips to museums and the theatre. Hot lunches, snacks Small classes and teachers personal attention to my kids The opportunity for middle and high school-level students learn French and Latin languages and write, direct, and produce a student film in Latin that is screened for the enjoyment of parents during our Open House event. A Yahoo! Group, where school officials share school news and other information of interest with us, such as cultural events, school photos, and information regarding the latest research on child development. A twice yearly I Know contest for kids in 4th 7th grades Chaperoned after-school events (such as parties and games) for older students.

Both my kids go to St.John's Orthodox Academy School. It's a small private school that provides students with a healthy, warm environment to foster the academic and spiritual growth of our kids. The focus in this school is on Orthodox education and religious emphasis. Small class size enables the well-qualified, enthusiastic teachers to provide one-on-one personal attention to students on instructions and class assignments. Aslo, we have healthy snacks and hot lunches everday. This school inlcudes English-only/Russian-speaking students. All subjects are in English and we have a Russian subject as a plus where our kids learn how to read and write in Russian. Students from our school consistently score high in state examinations and exceed state averages in academic accomplishment. The school administration works closely with parents to resolve disciplinary and academic issues. My daughter (5th grade) and my son (1st grade) are very happy in this school.
