If there’s one thing we all know about Bergen County, it’s that the schools are excellent and your kid is going to get a great education. But at St. John’s Academy, a Pre-K through 8th grade Regional Catholic school, your child gets more than just the ABCs and 123s. That's because at St. John's, your child isn't just taught how to be a good student. Importantly, care is also taken to help develop them into good people.
Children who attend St. John's will get an education that is informed by the Catholic faith and focused on academics, social justice, and service work. The faculty and staff at St. John’s Academy believe it is their moral and professional responsibility to provide learning opportunities in a faith-filled environment that nurtures, engages and challenges each individual student.
At St. John’s Academy, our primary grades enjoy personalized attention with a 10:1 student/teacher ratio. Parents of Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 students have the flexibility to create a schedule that works for their child. Full day and half day options, as well as full week and partial week options are available. Additionally, St. John’s Academy offers an extended care program with no long-term commitment required.
Students at SJA benefit from a focus on STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts and Math) that includes the recent completion of a new technology and design lab. Children in the upper grades benefit from the school's committment to a three year technology plan in order to foster real learning through technology. It must be working! SJA students are sought after by (and receive significant financial aid and scholarships from) top Catholic High Schools including Don Bosco, Bergen Catholic, St. Joseph’s, Academy of the Holy Angels, Immaculate Heart Academy and Paramus Catholic, among others.
Additionally, all students have access to a robust after-school enrichment program, wholly run by faculty and parents, in subjects as diverse as languages, drama, cooking, voice, engineering, and entrepreneurship.
St. John's Academy prides itself on the geographic diversity of its student body. Students hail from 36 different towns in New Jersey and New York State. Once at SJA, opportunities to become active with the community for parents and families are numerous. The Parent Teacher Guild (PTG) is an invaluable part of the school community and the Dad Squad hosts monthly socials for SJA dads.
