Welcome to St. John the Apostle Catholic School!!!!!!
Message from the Principal
Thank you for your interest in exploring the many gifts of St. John the Apostle Catholic School. We are blessed having a devoted Pastor, Fr. Rob Cole, a nurturing staff of educators and support personnel dedicated to the growth of the whole child and, equally as important, the endless support of parents and friends of the SJA community.
As you come to know more about SJA, we invite you to experience our commitment to:
PROVIDE a faith-filled foundation ensuring a strong Catholic identity in liturgy, scripture, prayer, sacraments, and service;
TRANSFORM classroom instruction by implementing 21st century skills that enhance student engagement and achievement. Additionally, our teachers have also transformed classroom instruction to include a whole new experience in VIRTUAL TEACHING and LEARNING. We have developed a "classroom without walls" and empowered students to become collaborative learners and resilient problem solvers.
CREATE a nurturing and safe environment that enables students to realize their full potential as lifelong learners, and
ENCOURAGE students to recognize the gifts of others and to focus on the needs of the underserved and underprivileged individuals in our local and global communities.
What we are is God’s gift to us and what we become is our gift back to God. At SJA our goal is to empower our students to become respectful, responsible and reverent leaders in our Church and thoughtful contributors in our society. On behalf of the faculty and support staff of St. John the Apostle Catholic School, we look forward to welcoming you to one of the premiere Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Richmond.
