When it comes to describing the St. John the Baptist Catholic School educational mission, perhaps Janet Erskine Stuart, rscj, Superior General of the Society of Sacred Heart from 1911-1914, said it best: “Our educational mission converges to this – to give personal worth to each child, worth of character, strength of principles and anchorage on faith. Those who have to educate the young to something higher must themselves have an idea of what they want; they must believe in the possibility of every mind and character to be lifted up to something better than it has already attained.”
This understanding of the educative breadth of a faculty member’s role is the foundation of the St. John the Baptist program. St. John the Baptist Catholic School educates to the whole person, forming both the heart and the mind of its students. It values and celebrates all forms of excellence, creating leaders of many different proportions and leaders of conscience.
