An Excerpt from St. John's Mission Statement

To offer talented, motivated, and energetic students a genuine challenge for academic accomplishment and for development of a sense of self-worth and of personal responsibility.


Since 1946, St. John’s School has been encouraging dedicated students to study, inquire, play, and thrive. Combining accomplishments in academics, athletics, and the arts with selfless service, St. John’s students join and continue our tradition of action, distinction, and service on and off campus. Offering students a supportive environment filled with possibility and fun, we celebrate their lives of discovery, and delight in seeing their successes here in Houston and beyond.

Developing the Whole Person

St. John's seeks to develop the whole person in preparation for a lifetime of personal fulfillment and contribution to society. Students of all ages and beliefs feel safe to explore the many dimensions of their developing personalities and interests. Whether it’s in attending chapel, or serving the needs of others, or experiencing the environment and cultures outside the classroom—there is opportunity to sample diverse experiences that bring out individual talents and share unique experiences together.
