Darkness is the absence of light.

Complete darkness causes many people to have severe anxiety and fear.

Sometimes it feels like we live in complete darkness. We fear the unknown future of the toilsome path of life. We tremble at the thought of death and what lies beyond. We live in a dark room, not knowing what lies in front of us.

Have you ever felt this way?

In any dark place, a light provides clarity and calmness to the fear of the unknown.

The first half of St. John School’s theme passage focuses on the light that we have in Christ. This light should not be kept hidden within our hearts.

Jesus Christ, our savior, dedicated his life in faithful service. Jesus won the victory that we could never win over death and the devil. The light of Christ and the message of salvation should be proclaimed to all people.

I am extremely thankful that we have the opportunity to revolve our education around that special light of Christ. We do not fear the future. We do not fear darkness. We do not fear death. We believe and trust in Christ Jesus, our savior.

St. John has a fully loaded curriculum offering reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, science, spelling, English, physical education, art and Bible history. St. John offers a quality education that prioritizes academics revolving around Jesus Christ our Savior. St. John offers an education for this life and for eternity.
