A child's education does not take place only in the classroom, during regular school hours. The home, the playground, and the school campus in general can all be invaluable settings for a child's personal and scholastic growth. One way to enhance a student's school experience is through extracurricular activities such as clubs.
At St. John's we understand that connecting with other students is one of the most important parts of a great school experience. That's why we offer clubs and activities for our students. Our wide range of clubs and activities let students easily make friends, meet other students, develop leadership skills, explore new interests, and to have fun! Join our school clubs and activities today! (Students must not have any D’s, F’s or U’s in any subject.)
