Student Life

At St. John the Baptist Catholic School, student life is more than academics. We provide an array of rich opportunities for athletics, extra-curricular activities, leadership, service, and a supportive community that makes every child’s experience special.

Athletics

Through participation in organized sports, the athletic program at St. John the Baptist Catholic School is designed to contribute to the health, well-being, citizenship and character development of our students.

St. John the Baptist participates in sports programs offered through the Archdiocese and other participating Catholic schools. Third and fourth grade students participate in the Widget League; Junior Varsity (grades 5 and 6) and Varsity (grades 7 and 8) participate in the Catholic Schools Athletic League (CSAL). Both leagues offer girls’ softball, boys’ baseball, boys’ and girls’ basketball, and boys’ and girls’ volleyball. St. John the Baptist Catholic School also participates with other Archdiocesan and non-Archdiocesan schools in Cross Country Running.

Arts

As with all talents, we strive to instill in our students a sense of gratitude for the special gifts they have been given and to inspire in them a desire to use their talent for the uplifting of man to the glory of God.
