Academics Overview:

St. John’s is a fully accredited kindergarten through eighth grade school and is accredited by the Minnesota Non-Public School Accrediting Association (MNSAA). Our administration and faculty annually complete internal curriculum evaluations. Additionally, we review the curriculum of Holy Angels, Burnsville – Eagan – Savage ISD191 and Prior Lake – Savage ISD719 to ensure St. John’s students can easily transition to these schools when the time comes.


The faculty and staff at St. John’s have high expectations for every student and for themselves.  All of our teachers hold Bachelor’s degrees with a third of them holding Master’s degrees. All hold current licensure from the state of Minnesota.  Many take advantage of continuing education opportunities both during the school year and over the summer months.
