The Cardinal Mindset

Strategic Plan 2021-2025 

Our aspiration is to maximize the Growth Mindset of every Cardinal where each individual believes in their unlimited potential, views challenges as opportunities for growth, and is an intellectual risk taker. Organized through the pillars of program, people, and place, the administration and the School Committee will collaborate to achieve excellence in academic, character, and faith education.


The St. John’s Episcopal School Mission:

Grounded in the rich history of diversity and excellence in Episcopal education, St. John’s fosters every child’s full intellectual, physical, and spiritual development. A nurturing learning environment and programs built on an ideal balance of tradition and innovation encourage our students to pursue lives of service and purpose.

Vision Statement:

St. John’s provides a world-class STEAM education that combines academic rigor with individualized instruction and meaningful character development, where each Cardinal is known, valued, and feels a sense of belonging.

As an independent school, St. John’s engaging programs, coupled with our inclusive, faith-based culture, enriches each student's mind, body, and spirit, resulting in exceptional academic trajectories and extraordinarily happy individuals.
