Thank you to St. John’s Sports Association and St. John the Baptist Parish, especially Greg Cox, Robert Truszkowski, Fr. Peter, and all those who have assisted us in making possible this spectacular upgrade to our SJA gym. It looks amazing!

God bless St. John’s Academy. I am a proud alum, ‘84, and parent alum, ‘16, ‘19, ‘23. Best decision my parents made and the best that we made for our sons!

God bless St. John’s Academy! Not an alum but all of my children are.

Definitely alumni. First principal was Mother Maria Cecilia, I believe the nuns were Sisters of St Joseph

My 3 children are alum and I was an asst. teacher there for 22 yrs.

We are happy to welcome Ms. Tamson Foudy to our St. Johns Academy faculty.  Ms. Foudy is excited to meet her fourth graders!

Our last day of the school year at SJA was such a special day!  We began the day with a beautiful Mass celebrated by Fr. Peter. Thank you to Mrs. Mays and our fifth graders for doing such a wonderful job leading us in the liturgy.  At the end of Mass, all of our faculty and staff were presented with roses by our students, in appreciation for all their hard work and dedication.  

Throughout the day, many joyful celebrations were held! In the final moments of the day, several of our cast members from “The Wizard of Oz” were present to hang up the plaque with their cast photo on the wall dedicated to SJA productions.

Thank you to our entire SJA community for such an amazing school year!
