Faith & Spirituality

Faith & Spirituality

A Catholic school is one arm of the educational ministry of the Church. The Church seeks to prepare its members to proclaim the Good News and to translate this into action. Your choice to send your child to Saint John the Baptist Middle School indicates that you are interested in the total development of your child. Everyone working together will result in a person prepared to cope with, live in, and contribute to the community in which he/she lives.
