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

Head of School Welcome

Welcome to St. John’s Episcopal School. As a leading independent school in Orange County, supporting of students from eight weeks to eighth grade, we are committed to the growth of every child in mind, body, and spirit.  

St. John’s Episcopal School believes that incredible teachers in small classes can dramatically impact the growth of every student. Every day, we honor our students for who they are, and foster their personal and intellectual growth to be the best versions of themselves. Through an engaging academic experience leveraging our acclaimed STEAM program across all age- and grade-levels, our students are developing the depth of knowledge, adaptability, and perseverance to face all challenges, today and in the future.  

Our classes are small by design, with individual attention placed on every child, valuing a diversity of thought, background, and experience. We’re a school that praises good questions as much as correct answers, where collaboration and kindness are essential. Beyond the classroom, our students flourish in the performing arts, on the athletic fields, and in the community, bringing the values of their faith to make an impact on the world beyond our walls.  

If you’re a part of the St. John’s family, I invite you to share your stories with me and others— as this place is truly special. And, if you’ve never been to our campus and find yourself curious about what has made St. John’s so impactful for over three decades, please click here to schedule a campus tour.
