The First Independent STEAM School in Orange County, CA
Serving Early Childhood to 8th Grade

Head of School Welcome

Thank you for visiting St. John’s Episcopal School’s website, where you will get a glimpse of what makes this a special place for students, from 8 Weeks to 8th Grade, to learn and grow. From our mission, to our size, to our program, to our beautiful and safe campus, every essential ingredient for excellence is present.

As an independent school, we are able to determine our own mission and values, and to create programs and approaches to learning that best serve our students. Through an ideal balance of tradition and innovation, we prepare every student for success in education and life beyond St. John’s. A strong character education program, grounded in the Episcopal heritage, equips our students with a strong moral compass and a commitment to service. Similarly, our highly acclaimed STEAM program provides the knowledge, skills, and habits of mind that enable our students to flourish academically in high school and college.

All this is accomplished in a nurturing learning environment, where every student is well known and valued. Our size is ideal: we are big enough to offer a wide range of opportunities in athletics, fine and performing arts, and clubs and activities; and we are small enough to ensure that we know how every student learns best and what motivates them to learn. We work in close partnership with parents to bring out the best in every child entrusted to us.

I hope that you will schedule a visit to learn more about the exceptional experience that our students enjoy.
