St. John of the Cross Catholic School is a preschool through eighth grade Catholic elementary school rich in academics and faith formation, known throughout the diocese for its competitive sports teams and embodies the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the framework that guides the staff and student body in all its pursuits. As a school community we live and teach the Corporal Works of Mercy through community outreach programs to the local community and beyond. Staffed by the Mercedarian Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament and under the guidance of our pastor, Father Peter Navarra, St. John of the Cross is the quintessential Catholic School.
