St. John’s Academy offers an academically rigorous and transformational learning program for tomorrow’s leaders in a caring and supportive environment. With this in mind, we truly believe that less is more. Fewer students in a class equal more opportunity for personalized learning and individual growth as we strive to ensure the success of all students on their educational journey.
At St. John’s Academy, we run on a trimester system with our quarters being 15 weeks in duration. In our opinion, this has many advantages as compared to the linear school system. Students take 4 courses per quarter, which offers flexibility in what and when they can take courses. It offers a tighter more efficient curriculum. Students interact with their core teachers more frequently which allows an increase in interpersonal relationships and finally, some students love the ability to accelerate their study by earning the Dogwood Certificate in less time.
St. John’s Academy, has Three intakes per year: January, May, and September.
