With its mix of top-notch academics, 100% college acceptance rate to some of the nation's best schools, vibrant arts programs, and championship athletics, St. Johns is one of the top schools in the Jacksonville area for a reason.

"One of the best things about St. Johns," says Fisher, "is that we are able to offer all that we do while still enjoying a family atmosphere where every student can do and be whatever they set their minds to. St. Johns is truly a place where academics, the arts, and athletics all thrive in a secure social culture where no student need worry about 'fitting in.”
