Young Men Want to Be Challenged

St. John’s Jesuit Academy provides a culture where challenging academics occur every day, in every classroom, encouraging our students to be academically successful and motivated to be life-long learners.

The Academy curriculum is designed to prepare boys for a college-prep high school.  Students take a full course of English, Science, Math, Social Studies, Theology, Fine Arts and Physical Education. For students who are ready to advance, high school classes are offered in Math, Science, Health, Computer, World Languages and Instrumental Music. In eighth grade, most every student takes at least one high school level class.

All students need help at some time.  That’s why the Academy has access to the A+ Learning Center, modeled after learning centers at leading colleges and universities, which is staffed with learning specialists and tutors available in every subject.  St. John’s Jesuit wants every young man to be successful.

Academy teachers recognize that boys need frequent movement and focus through hands-on learning throughout their curriculum.  Field trips are action-oriented allowing boys to explore their natural curiosity, particularly in the sciences. Examples include Space Camp, Stone Lab on Lake Erie Island, Camp Storer, Washington D.C., the Newport Aquarium and Chicago.  The Academy channels boys’ energy and helps them develop new passions through specialty trips that can include skiing, paintball, ice skating, professional sports and more.
