Since 2015, St. John School – accredited by the Middle States Association, located in Binghamton, New York, and part of the Catholic Schools of Broome County that is under the auspice of The Diocese of Syracuse – has supported students in discovering their unique strengths, expanding their individual capabilities, developing their intellects, forming their faith that is “living, conscious and active” and reflective of the Roman Catholic Church teachings, and fostering community engagement and social responsibility.
Our community of parents, faculty, administrators, religious sisters, and clergy are dedicated to providing a quality education to our children. Students are encouraged to develop and embrace the qualities of spirituality, self-discipline, strong character, and social responsibility. Art, computer, library, music, physical education, and Spanish classes are offered from Kindergarten through Sixth Grade.
