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.


In keeping with our mission to form disciples of Jesus Christ, we consider athletics an important part of our curriculum formation. Through participation in organized sports, the athletic program at St. John the Baptist Catholic School is designed to contribute to our student’s health, well-being, citizenship, and character development.

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, boys’ and girls’ volleyball, boys’ and girls’ cross-country running, and boys’ and girls’ swimming.


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


As the trend in education seeks to cut Music Department funding, St. John’s is going in the opposite direction. Our curriculum puts greater emphasis on music. Students learn music theory, the art of performance, the history of the great composers, and how to connect with the depths of order and objective beauty communicated by music.

Besides singing in the choir at Mass and concerts, our students work extremely hard for two major yearly productions – a Christmas performance in December and a musical in the Spring. Feel free to join us! Check out our social media for dates and times.

Visual Arts

The fine arts emerge when human work fashions something beautiful for enjoyment and edification. Human beings desire to make things to contribute to the world through work, and art constitutes one of the highest ways of sharing in God’s creative work. A study of art nurtures our souls and imaginations as we seek our ultimate end, eternal life in heaven.

Our visual arts program provides a creative and enriching art curriculum that includes knowledge, skills, and concepts in an age-appropriate manner.

St. John the Baptist Catholic School offers additional extra-curricular opportunities in both visual and performing arts. These activities provide young artists with other avenues for exploring and developing their creative talents while giving the entire school and parish community a chance to appreciate those talents.

Enrichment Program

The St. John the Baptist Enrichment Program is an innovative, educationally oriented program established to enhance and expand the abilities and experiences of the children enrolled in our school.

The Enrichment program offers students a variety of extracurricular classes that take place on campus after school hours. Class schedules change and include such offerings as Art, Student Government, Lego Club, Spelling Bee, Hand Bell Choir, Chess, and more.
