Student Clubs values all members of the learning community. We are dedicated to their education, development, and well-being for over quarter of a century. As an inclusive and supportive school community, St John’s Academy nurtures welcoming environment that focuses on providing high quality instruction. We embrace culture of acceptability, openness and resilience, instilling responsible working habits, building leadership, sustaining strong and effective relationships and partnerships.
School Clubs’ extra curricular activities allow students to further explore their interests within the school and beyond, while building a strong student community. As graduation approaches, most of our student’s focus and dreams become clear. To support this, we provide ways in which they can concentrate on and further develop these specific interests.

The Karaoke Club is focused on fun, learning English through singing, making new friends and creating a sense of community at St. John’s International School.
