The big Difference
St. John’s is big. A 175-acre campus with 10 buildings and 1,500 students from 80 cities and towns. In some ways, big is the operative world.
A big campus with big resources means big opportunities, big aspirations, and big benefits. More clubs, more teams, more programming and more experiences mean a world of opportunities. Our students have the freedom to be themselves, take on any role, explore their passions and find their niche.
Each of the 1,500 boys on campus is known and valued for who he is. All are guided by educators who understand young men and how they develop.
We know boys. We know how to engage them and personalize their experience here. We know their concerns and vulnerabilities, their strengths and enthusiasms, and we know how they bond. Most importantly: We know how to work with them, support them and motivate them. As members of an inclusive community grounded in respect and kindness, we join together to make every corner of the Prep campus a workshop for intellectually curious young minds.
Yes, we’re a big school. A boys’ school. And our 15,000 alumni would surely agree: It makes a big difference.
