John the Baptist Diocesan High School serves the people of Long Island
by educating the minds, molding the hearts and developing the gifts and
talents of young men and women. More than an institution of academic
excellence, St. John’s offers young people an opportunity for moral,
spiritual, athletic, social and personal growth.
Our mission is clear. Every child, unique in talent and
ability, should have an opportunity for an education in a community in
which Catholic moral values are taught and lived. Therefore, we strive
to provide an environment where each student is accepted and challenged
to reach his or her potential in becoming a whole person.
Our ministry of education and formation is rooted in the
mission that extends from the rigors of academic work to the spirit
present in prayer and worship, from the challenges of athletic
competition to the supportive atmosphere of care and compassion, and the
work of social justice. This is the work of the Gospel and therefore
serves the ministry of St. John the Baptist Diocesan High School.
At St. John’s, it is not simply our job, but our vocation to
educate young people and help them to realize goals both academic and
personal and along the way help them to become moral individuals.
