Mission Statement

We the community of St. John Chrysostom School, professing our faith in our Savior Jesus Christ and His Church, are committed to the process and goals of Catholic Education. We recognize and respect that we are co-educators with the parents, who are the primary educators of their children. To support this team, we strive to provide a faith-filled and caring environment in which our professional skills, personal talents and the example of our lives will enable our students to grow in the following ways: spiritually, intellectually, socially, psychologically, physically, technologically, ecologically, and culturally. This environment will encourage the students to become confident, committed, self-disciplined, life-long developing Christians whose responsible participation in society will reflect their reverence for all life.
