annual appeal 2016-2017

St. John Catholic is truly the answer to our prayers. We were searching for a small school that could provide a faith based learning environment for our kindergartner. The small teacher to student ratios allow each student to receive the individual attention he or she needs to achieve academic success.—current Saint John parent

Our Annual Appeal is underway!!

This campaign is critical to the success of our school. We continue to feel blessed by those willing to share their treasure with us. As the new principal at Saint John, I continue to be amazed by the generosity and community support for this precious place.

At Saint John, we maintain the high quality of a Catholic education each day as the staff and faculty encourage our young people to pursue excellence. They educate, inspire, and motivate our children to be the best they can. They provide an atmosphere that stimulates their minds, opens their hearts to God and rewards respect for all people.

The students of Saint John represent the greater Charleston area. Their backgrounds, faiths, talents, and abilities to achieve vary, but each child is treated as an individual and enjoys the special attention that results from a 7:1 student/teacher ratio.  The amazing teaching team and support staff are unparalleled in their dedication to our children. This school is a blessing to the community.

Because we want to continue to offer an affordable tuition rate for our students, we are appealing to you for your financial assistance. We encourage you to give with your heart.  We truly need everyone’s support. Consider $25, $50, or $100…every gift counts!  No gift is too big or too small. Your kindness will be appreciated more than you can imagine! If a financial gift is not possible, please offer your prayers.

A gift to Saint John is one that will enrich the future of our children. It may be used to enhance our technology efforts, to ensure our student/teacher ratio remains low, to provide sensory items for our students with special needs, or for other school improvement projects.  I thank you for your generosity and ask for your continued prayers for the faculty, staff, and students of Saint John Catholic School.

God Bless,

Karen Durand
