The students of St. John’s Academy presented our pastor, Father Peter with a Spiritual Bouquet. They prayed a decade of the rosary in his name. We are grateful to Father Peter and the parish of St. John the Baptist for their support.

Oh my kiddos came home from watching this so happy! They thought it was very exciting and cool.

Great pics, Looks like fun!

On Monday, January 30th SJA students all took part in a day of service. We collected donations and created almost 200 bags filled with personal toiletries. These bags were then donated to an elementary school in Newark to help students in need. We prayed for our fellow students as we sorted and organized the donations and prepared them for delivery. Catholic schools are about faith, excellence, and service. At SJA our students embrace service and strive to always help others and share the love of Christ. #wearesja #CatholicSchoolsNJ #ArchdioceseOfNewark #CSW2023

Father Peter of St. John the Baptist R.C. Church joined us today and visited with the students. He talked about St. John Bosco whose feast day is today. He told us it was a special Thanksgiving day because we are thankful and celebrate Catholic education and people like St. John Bosco who were dedicated to teaching children and providing them with a rigorous faith-based education. Father prayed with us and gave a special blessing to all our students. Thank you Father Peter, it is always a treat to have you visit with us. #wearesja #CatholicSchoolsNJ #ArchdioceseOfNewark #CSW2023

St. John’s Academy is so blessed with the support and guidance of our wonderful pastor!

Father Peter is an amazing pastor.

We are so proud of all the students who spoke on behalf of SJA. Even our young first and second graders gave heartfelt and informative speeches at their parish mass. We thank our surrounding parishes for their support of Catholic education and of SJA.  Come see the difference SJA makes! Open House on Tuesday, January 31 at 9 am. #wearesja #CatholicSchoolsNJ  #ArchdioceseOfNewark
