Welcome to our School

St. John the Apostle Catholic School is the jewel of Sandbridge, serving Pre K-3 through 8th grade. We invite you to experience our commitment to our students and families as we live out our motto: Pray, Learn, Grow.

Pray: SJA provides a faith filled foundation ensuring a strong Catholic identity in liturgy, scripture, prayer, sacraments and service. Students are paired with a prayer partner to help encourage and share their faith journey. Students participate in Mass as lectors, gift bearers and altar servers.

Learn: SJA transforms classroom instruction by implementing 21st century skills. Students in grades 5-8 receive their own Chromebooks and the state-of-the-art technology lab enhances student engagement and achievement:

Grow: SJA creates a nurturing and safe environment that enables students to realize their full potential as lifelong learners. SJA teachers encourage students to recognize the gifts of others and to focus on the needs of the undeserved and underprivileged individuals in our local and global communities.

If you are searching to find that special place that feels like home, we invite you to come and experience the spirit of St. John the Apostle Catholic School. It's the SJA way!
