School Overview

Saint John School is a Pre-K through Grade 8 Catholic elementary school located in Boston, Massachusetts. Nestled in the heart of Boston’s North End, Saint John School has educated students for bright futures since 1895.  Saint John School offers a unique balance of structure, inspiration, and room to fly. While rooted in Catholic tradition, the school community is open to families of all backgrounds who understand the importance of building a child’s character as much as building knowledge. The Saint John approach teaches children to “do the right thing” as they master new subjects, stretch their wings, and develop a critical and curious mind.  With the support and guidance of their teachers, they explore their true selves, develop confidence while exhibiting kindness, and push the reaches of their imagination and potential. In a close-knit school that takes full advantage of the vibrant cultural offerings just outside its door, students are prepared to become not just successful learners, but also kind, confident citizens of the world.

Mission Statement

Saint John School is a Catholic, value-centered learning community dedicated to fostering the growth of each student in spirit, mind and body. We utilize innovative programs and a standards-based curriculum to educate the whole child.

Program Highlights

After graduating from Saint John School, students launch into their high school years with the confidence of feeling one step ahead of their peers. This is due largely to having highly-trained teachers and a rigorous curriculum.  Saint John School is in a truly wonderful position to move into the future and provide the best education for its students, so that they achieve their full potential.


“Saint John School is a gem! For the past nine years, our children have been challenged academically, and we have watched them become self-confident learners. The community of teachers, parents and children is welcoming, caring and supportive.”
