The Mission Of Catholic Schools
"Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Oakland educate children in the Catholic faith and nurture their minds, bodies, and souls, inspiring them to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ, achieve their highest academic and creative potential, and actively serve and enrich the community."
St. John Catholic School provides quality education in a caring, Catholic environment. The teachers, staff, and students endeavor to model the example of Jesus Christ throughout their daily lives, in the classroom, and in weekly worship together. We foster enthusiasm for life-long learning. We support and encourage parents, as the first and foremost educators of their children, to strengthen the intellectual, spiritual, social, physical, emotional, and psychological well-being of each child. We celebrate the cultural diversity of our community and believe that our respect for each individual will strengthen self-esteem and regard for others. It is in this atmosphere that our students and families can learn to bring about dynamic change in the areas of human dignity, freedom, peace, and social justice.
St. John Catholic School Mission Statement
St. John is a Catholic parish Pre-K-8 school serving our families and those from the neighboring areas and surrounding communities of San Lorenzo. Our dedicated faculty and staff, in partnership with the parents, offer our students a quality academic foundation. As we teach for skill development, intellectual enrichment, and academic and physical excellence, we challenge and prepare our children for future growth in today’s society.
We create a Catholic atmosphere in which the values, traditions and ideals are fundamental to our academic vision for cultivating faith formation, personal integrity, and life-long learning.
