A Message from Principal Goldman

Dear Future Saint John School Families,

I am so grateful you are considering Saint John the Baptist Catholic School for your family.  Saint John School and Parish have been teaching the Catholic faith for 145 years.  The people who have been part of our school set the foundation for those yet to come.   We would love to add you to our growing family!

Catholic education, whether through the Catholic school or Faith Formation, is the largest ministry in the Catholic Church.  The future of our Church is dependent on our young generations.   Offering a strong, faith-based, education is vital.  We are proud to provide a solid foundation rooted in faith which supports soul formation, sets high academic standards, encourages service, strengthens morals and values, and provides opportunities to participate in Sacraments.  This foundation sets Saint John the Baptist Catholic School apart from the other schools in our area.

In addition to our focus on faith, Saint John School is proud to offer a rigorous curriculum with high academic standards.  We are blessed to live in a country where education is available to all children.  We know you have options, including the local Waunakee schools, so we work to maintain a high standard of learning and look to find ways to set us apart.  Saint John School is fully accredited through the Wisconsin Religious and Independent School Accreditation (WRISA). Our curriculum is based on national, state, and diocesan standards which are reviewed each year.  SJS teachers are licensed with years of continuing education credits, but more importantly, they are here because they have been called to serve in the vocation of Catholic school teachers.  Each day, they work to meet the needs of each student through personal contact and differentiation.
                         
We are grateful you are considering Saint John the Baptist Catholic School for your family.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our school or the enrollment process.  I look forward to welcoming your family to our SJS family!
 
In Christ,
 
Liz Goldman, Principal
