Student Life

Consistent with our Benedictine heritage, Saint John’s is a “school for the Lord’s service” (Rule of Benedict, Prologue). Student life reflects this focus on preparation for serving God; academics, community life, spiritual growth, recreation, and vocational discernment all work together in a well-integrated student experience.

“This spirit of community is a reflection of the ideal of the monastic community, undoubtedly.  It spills over into the lives of students, leaving as its mark a vision and hope for one’s world; that it will be a personal habitat where each person’s actual significance is appreciated; that in it people will support and enrich each other; that it can be a place of welcome.”
