Vita scholae (school life) at St. John’s combines the academic rigor that parents expect from a fine independent school with the extra touches that a private school can provide.
Uniting with the nurturing environment created by our grounding in the Episcopal faith and tradition, these qualities make St. John’s tops among South Tampa schools. Creative field trips, cutting-edge technology, thoughtful divinity lessons, and quality visiting authors and artists enhance the traditional curriculum during the school day, and winning athletics and fun extra-curricular activities reinforce the School’s values even after the traditional school day ends. Taken all together, they create a well-rounded St. John’s student, one who is ready to take on a world of limitless possibilities.

The School’s curriculum includes school-wide fine arts instruction, encompassing both studio art and music. State of the art computers are networked with ELMOs, interactive SMART Boards, and iPads, one provided for every student on every campus. Our no-cut philosophy and dedicated athletic facilities have inspired enthusiasm for sports throughout the St. John’s community, highlighted by division championships in girls’ and boys’ basketball, volleyball, softball, baseball, girls’ and boys’ track, tennis, and girls’ and boys’ soccer, as well as our League’s Sportsmanship Award for five years in a row. And we have, and will continue to, expand our fine arts offerings. In 2015, we doubled the size of our visual art room, added a projection system for the use of our music department. In 2016, we renovated the Media Centers on both the Lower and Middle campuses.
