Over the summer, the deck and quad area was transformed into a new beautiful space thanks to the generosity of so many at the 2021 Gala & Auction: A Night in Old Havana. The space is not only the epicenter of our campus but also is an important extension of the classroom. 

Along with the newly renovated area, a brick pathway was added across the quad. Show your support for St. Johns and leave your lasting message by purchasing a brick to be paved into this walkway!

Often it takes years for alumni to reconnect with St. Johns. This was certainly the case with Jack, but once he and the School were reconnected, boy did he have a story to share. He describes his time at St. Johns as an escape from his life outside school. He built relationships with peers and teachers and worked hard to keep up with the demanding academics. Jack recalls Miss Edith Cowles who taught English and was his homeroom teacher senior year, “She was known as being tough, but I enjoyed being a storyteller and she made it a challenge.”
