Our Mission and Values
St. John's Prep, a Catholic, Xaverian Brothers Sponsored School for young men in grades 6 through 12, is committed to educating the whole person. Our rigorous academic and extensive co-curricular program encourages students to develop their spiritual, intellectual, moral, physical, and creative potential, and inspires them to honor the diversity that enriches both our school community and the world beyond St. John's. We challenge our young men to grow in faith and wisdom, to promote human dignity, to act with compassion and integrity, to pursue justice and peace, and to live lives of service to society.
As a Xaverian Brothers sponsored school, we embrace the spiritual values of our founders: compassion, humility, simplicity, trust and zeal. These values define our community and call us to lives of faith and service. This year, we place a special focus on COMPASSION. See more about our challenge to put compassion into action by being upstanders.
Rooted in the Gospels and the other Xaverian values, compassion opens our hearts to the experiences of others and inspires the courage to serve. As lived by Jesus, compassion is the heart seeking action. It calls us to journey with those in need, those who suffer, and those on the margins. Compassion calls us to act for justice and to live lives of mercy and forgiveness.
