About this school

With median SAT Scores of 1800 and scores of 3 or higher on 91% of AP Exams, St. Johns students outperform their counterparts at every other school in Northeast Florida. At our school, we say “it’s cool to be smart.” While we are fortunate to admit many students who are blessed with a strong intellect, we are just as committed to nurturing a passion for life-long learning in students whose greatest assets are their desire to do something great with their lives.
