Welcome to Saint Johns Prep

Saint John’s Preparatory School

Nestled among the stunning beauty that is Central Minnesota, Saint John’s Preparatory School has been providing a higher level of education in the Benedictine tradition for over 150 years. Serving both local and boarding students, and boasting of a diverse and robust international student population, our mission is to prepare students for college and ensure they are accepted to the college they desire.

As a Catholic preparatory school, Saint John’s collaborates very closely with the exceptional Saint John’s University and provides our students with a broad understanding of the importance of community, integrity, excellence, and spiritual growth. We accept students from all faiths and provide an extremely safe and secure environment to nurture them. The lessons we work so diligently to teach are carried with our students throughout their lives, and foster opportunities to achieve not only their school and career goals but their life goals as well.

Our school is the optimal choice for exceptional students in grades 6-12, and as our alumni, proudly shares from their own experience, our highly gifted faculty and staff teaches the children to dream big, believe that anything is within their grasp, and nothing is beyond their potential. Holistic development and a different way of life are two key factors that set Saint John’s Preparatory School apart.
