Rooted in Faith, Growing in Knowledge. Father Bennett founded St. John of the Cross Parish School in 1961 with the idea that a school would be the foundation of the parish. Our parish school prides itself on multi-generational Catholic traditions and achievement alongside a challenging educational experience that fosters long-term student success.
We integrate faith into every area of our curriculum as our students focus on the three R’s: Ready, Respectful, Responsible. Each day begins with an all-school prayer written and read by students followed by the Prayer of St. Francis, setting the tone for our day.
For almost 60 years our school community has continued to provide a safe and dynamic Catholic environment where faith is nourished and knowledge grows.
St. John of the Cross Parish School is a multiple National Blue Ribbon School Awardee, 2012 and 2020.
