Meet the Staff

Welcome to St. John the Apostle Catholic School

     I am excited to have you visit our school’s website! At SJA you will find a caring and knowledgeable staff dedicated to providing a rich, engaging and rigorous academic experience. We serve Pre-School through Eighth Grade students and are fully accredited through the Western Catholic Education Association. In addition to a strong core curriculum, SJA students participate in daily prayer, weekly Mass and religious studies. Our students also receive instruction in the areas of Spanish, technology, library, music, art and physical education.

     As a Catholic school, we are committed to educating the whole child by providing a strong foundation that balances our academic focus with faith-based service and leadership experiences. SJA students have opportunities to participate in a buddy program, the school-wide House system, community service projects, peer tutoring, student council and afterschool CYO activities.

We provide a safe, loving and nurturing environment that plays an important role in fostering the development of your child’s character. We teach our students to “Be Christ-like * Be Safe * Be Responsible * Be Respectful” and to always strive to keep our Catholic values at the center of all they do.

     I am honored to serve as the principal at Saint John the Apostle Catholic School. I hope you will consider visiting our campus and joining our SJA community. Please contact us if you would like to schedule a campus tour. We would love to meet you!
