Mission and Values
St. John's Prep, an inclusive, 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.
The five spiritual values of the Xaverian Brothers—humility, compassion, simplicity, trust and zeal—inspire our community daily and call us to lives of faith and service. Though the values are closely connected to the Brothers' founding and history, they are very much a part of the day-to-day life of students at St. John's. Each year, our school community chooses one or two values to focus on and incorporate in daily prayers, academic lessons, service projects, and in co-curricular activities. Each of the values carries its own significance in the context of a Xaverian education, and students find meaning in them well beyond their time at St. John's.
St. John's Preparatory School admits students of any race, color, national, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the School. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, tuition assistance, athletics, and other school-administered programs.
St. John's Prep has developed three cultural priorities that stem from our mission and from the Fundamental Principles of the Xaverian Brothers. We use this series of cultural priorities to guide the way we do our work and operate as an institution. Our goal is to make these priorities a lived reality in the lives of our students, parents, faculty, staff, coaches, and the greater St. John's Prep community.
