Open Houses & Tours



Open Houses

At St. John's, we think visiting a campus is extremely important, and we look forward to welcoming you to ours. The best opportunity to visit is to attend one of our Open Houses in the fall of the year you apply your child. The Open House is a wonderful introduction to the School and will give you the opportunity to hear remarks from our Head of School, Division Head, and Director of Admission. You will also have the opportunity to tour the campus, visit classrooms, and meet members of our faculty and student tour guild.

St. John's School supports opportunities for students underrepresented by race, ethnicity, gender, religion, and sexual orientation to gather in brave/safe spaces to share experiences through raising awareness, identity empowerment opportunities, and shared support called affinity groups. This information session will provide prospective families the opportunity to learn more about ten SJS Upper School affinity groups. These groups represent an example of the first line of our school's Statement on Community and Inclusion: "Every member of the St. John's community is known and loved."

FAQs

List of 2 frequently asked questions.

  • When is the best time to tour the campus?

    The best time to tour our campus is in the fall preceding the year you wish to enroll.  This timeframe will allow us to share the most current information about St. John’s prior to all application and testing deadlines. St. John’s will have Open Houses this fall for our Lower (Classes K - 5), Middle (Classes 6-8), and Upper (Classes 9-11) Schools. Prospective families can tour the campus, speak with faculty and students, and hear from the Director of Admission about the application process. If you do not attend the Open House but still wish to see our campus, please contact our office to schedule a tour.
     
  • How can I sign up to tour the St. John's campus? Do I need to submit an application before my family can tour St. John's?

    You can sign up for a tour beginning in October, but we encourage you to attend our Open House events. Dates and tour information can be found on this webpage. Attending a tour is not a requirement in our admission process.
