At St. John’s, the Christian faith is a part of the daily life of every student. Chapel begins the day for students at all School campuses.
At the Lower and Middle campuses, a full Eucharist is also celebrated once a week, in the consecrated Price Chapel at Middle, and at the lovely historic St. John’s Church at Lower. Students in Forms VII through X (5th through 8th grades) participate in these services as acolytes and lay readers.
Divinity classes are part of the school experience for all students regardless of the nature of their religious faith. Christ’s two great commandments are central to the curriculum throughout all grade levels: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind…and love your neighbor as yourself.” All students participate in outreach projects each year that allow them to live out these commandments. These outreach projects include fulfilling local needs by helping organizations like Cornerstone Kids, Metropolitan Ministries, and Faith Cafe.
