St. John the Baptist Catholic School is called by faith to proclaim the Risen Christ through the lives and experiences of its parents, students, and staff. It is committed to providing faith, academic, and social experiences to prepare its students to be life-long learners and leaders in the church and community as witnesses to the gospel of Jesus Christ.


St. John the Baptist students “Learn” because of academics that are both rigorous and faith-based. This provides them the experience they need to think critically and achieve great success while living by the teachings of Jesus.


St. John the Baptist students “Love” as they develop a fellowship with each other, their teachers and the community, as well as a solidarity for all human beings as exemplified by Jesus and His genuine love for all.


St. John the Baptist students “Pray.” They experience God’s love and grace through the celebration of the Eucharist, as well as daily public and private prayer.


St. John the Baptist students “Serve” by learning to live their lives for others and through the giving of their own unique gifts to the parish, the school and their community.

Faith Formation

Faith formation is more than learning from a book; it is learning to live the faith daily. The parish pastor and The Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools guide St. John the Baptist Catholic School. Our first-rate faculty instills confidence in parents that their investment in Catholic education will support their child’s complete development and personal success.

Religious Curriculum & Faith Development

At St. John the Baptist Catholic School, we strive to emulate a Christ-centered community that weaves the teachings of the Church within the school day and year. Along with daily theology classes, the students attend school Mass, celebrated weekly on Tuesday and Thursday, and for feast days and holy days, and classes participate in weekly Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Confessions are offered monthly for students, which provides a solid basis for students to receive the sacraments.

Regular routines include morning and afternoon school prayer and recitation of the rosary at least once a month. Other Catholic traditions celebrated throughout the year include the Feast of St. John the Baptist, All Saints Day, St. Nicholas’ Feast Day, Our Lady of Guadalupe, St. Lucy’s Feast Day, Stations of the Cross during Lent, and many others.

Service becomes an embedded part of life at St. John the Baptist Catholic School with activities such as food collection for the St. John’s Food Bank, outreach to senior citizens living at the Hover Manor Home, the Jesse Tree Program, Law Enforcement Appreciation Month, and the collection of items for the Gabriel House.
