"We are strong believers in St. John’s approach to developing the “whole child,” and we believe our three children will benefit greatly from the balanced academic, social and spiritual foundation provided by the St. John’s faculty and community. We support the St. John’s Fund each year, as it fills a critical gap between tuition and the actual cost of a St. John’s education. Our contribution through the Fund is further leveraged, as it is 100% tax deductible, and family participation plays an important role in St. John’s competitiveness in securing foundation grants."

 - St. John’s Fund Campaign Chairs Nicole and Winston Post, parents to Quinn '28, Ramsey '26, and Elliott '32 

THE ST. JOHN’S FUND is the School’s largest annual fundraiser that allows our School to fulfill its mission of creating programs of academic excellence designed to train the mind, strengthen the character, and enrich the spirit of each student in a Christian environment. This Fund helps to bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of providing the remarkable St. John’s experience which captures every student’s imagination and fosters an environment so that they will become well-rounded confident learners.   

Annual participation is important and represents the strength of our community and our School. Our goal is to reach 100% participation from our great community.
