Legacy & Beliefs
Over 60 years of excellence
Originally staffed by the Sisters of Mercy from Merion, Pennsylvania, St. John the Evangelist School opened its doors in 1954. Their charism of spirituality, community, service, and social justice embodies the school’s spiritual heritage and foundation.
The school motto, “Reverence, Respect, and Responsibility,” reflects the school’s core values and guides the daily interactions of students, faculty, and parents.
