We are very pleased to share the news that we are partnering with Saint John’s Preparatory School of Collegeville, Minnesota in its search for a new Head of School for July of 2019. Founded in 1857, Saint John’s is a Catholic, Benedictine, co-educational, day and boarding, college preparatory school for students in grades 6-12 & PG. Enrolling 255 students who hail from the local area, across Minnesota, throughout the United States, and around the globe, Saint John’s has been named the best Catholic high school in Minnesota by Niche, and has earned acclaim as an International Baccalaureate World School. Situated on a 2,700-acre campus featuring pristine forests and lakes, Saint John’s shares this stunning property and its resplendent natural and recreational resources with two of the top Catholic liberal arts institutions in the United States, St. John’s University and Benedict College. As a result, students are given the extraordinary opportunity to take college courses at either of the two university campuses.
Saint John’s combines the quest for academic excellence with a commitment to nurturing the whole student and the shaping of spiritual growth. Through the talents of an exceptional faculty, modern and architecturally distinctive facilities, rigorous but innovative scholastic programming, and vibrant extracurricular activities, this life-changing school prepares its students for leadership and success in college and beyond.
