ST. JOHNS COUNTRY DAY SCHOOL

College prep, redefined

Since 1953, St. Johns

Country Day School

has been helping

First Coast families raise

children who are inquisitive,

creative, inspired

and inspiring. With its

amazing faculty, first-rate

academics, robust visual

and performing arts,

exciting trip opportunities

and championship athletics

programs, St. Johns

is perfectly positioned

to help you prepare your

child not just for college,

but for life.

Academics

Rigorous coursework

combined with the

Character Foundations

personal development

course and rich fellowship

and intern programs

give St. Johns students

ample opportunity

to stretch, learn and

grow. Fellowships allow

students to conduct

deep-dive explorations

of particular topics

through customized,

self-directed courses

of study that integrate

academics, interactive

projects, online studies,

career internships

and service. St. Johns is

also one of only a handful

of local schools to offer

The College Board’s AP

Capstone program — an

innovative diploma program

that helps students

develop the skills that

matter most for college

success: research,

collaboration and

communication.

Arts

St. Johns’ robust visual

and performing arts programs

encourage students

to explore the arts and

cultivate creativity and

growth among students of

all skill levels. Last year,

35 student-artists were

recognized for 64 artworks

in the prestigious annual

Scholastic Art & Writing

Awards competition.

Band, choral and handbell

programs couple with

dance and the dramatic

arts to ensure that the

school’s beautiful 600 seat

Performing Arts Center

has a robust schedule of

events.
