From its founding in 1953 by Dr. Edwin P. Heinrich, St. Johns Country Day School has always been a "college prep" school. But these days, nearly every secondary school prepares students for college, so what sets St. Johns apart? Many things, certainly, but above all its our family atmosphere and future-facing curriculum that prepares students not just for college, but for life. We hear it again and again from our graduates-- when they got to college they not only "survived," they thrived. They had the skills they needed to excel in their coursework, understood self-leadership and motivation, and managed campus life with aplomb.
Part of the reason for their success is St. Johns' small class sizes, personal attention, and our innovative programs that help students try new things, build on successes, and deep-dive into areas they are passionate about. These opportunities help St. Johns students become even more broadly informed and engaged and better equip them for today's ever-changing realities in college and career. Read on to learn more!
