Saint John the Baptist School’s philosophy is rooted in the teachings of Jesus and the Catholic traditions.
“Full authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth: go, therefore and make disciples of all nations… Teach them to carry out everything I have commanded you…” (Matthew 28:18-20)
We recognize that parents are the primary educators of their children. As Catholic educators, we pursue and promote active cooperation between parents and the school. Our school seeks to respond to the needs of our students by integrating instruction, culture, and faith. Our goal is to create opportunities for growth in an atmosphere in which each student's spiritual, moral, psychological, intellectual, physical, sociological, and aesthetic development is met. We measure education not only in academic achievements, but in the student's active contribution as responsible members of our global community.
With over 60 years of service, St. John has been a beacon of faith and education for the local community of Baldwin Park.
