    St. John the Baptist has made it possible for my child to be educated thoroughly...Spiritually Academically and Physically. After beginning her education in a public school the benefits to a religious education schooling are wonderous. She is so happy and obviously filled with the love of Christ every day through the kindness and sincerety of the staff students and the Holy Spirit present in St. John the Baptist School. Blessed are all who seek the Lord and I pray that all parents will feel the comfort and joy I have knowing that my child is being raised in His name. Blessings to all.

    My school offers a faith based education. Our test scores are well above average. Our teachers are fully commited to our students and encourage growth in faith academics leadership. Many of our students have gone on to graduate as valedictorians of their high school. We are a family of christians that are growing learning and achieving. This is the best school in the county. Public schools are failing to meet the needs of the children. The standardized testing proves it. My family loves St John the Baptist School.

    St. John the Baptist School is an excellent beginning to your child's education and growth. We are a third generation St. John's family and love our school. This school becomes an extension of family and friends. We have been blessed with wonderful caring teachers that work with us in creating a safe learning environment for our children. Our children love the staff and school and make lifelong friends here. They learn to respect themselves and others so they are prepared to be productive young adults. We have an excellent educational program and are active in sports and community service at St. John the Baptist in Monaca PA.

    St. John the Baptist School has been an investment in my children's future that I won't ever regret. The teachers truly care about each child's learning and development. I have 2 children that have been in the school from 3 year old preschool and are currently in 4th and 7th grade and couldn't be happier with the academics (check out the wonderful test scores) the culture and family atmosphere. It is worth every penny and there is financial aid available to make it affordable for everyone!

    St. John the Baptist School has provided my child with an amazing start to his education. Our son is thriving at St. John's. We are a family of Public Educators and we chose to privately educate our child. The teachers are absolutely fantastic and the focus on the Catholic/Christian moral teaching provides a healthy wholesome learning and growing environment. Do not hesitate to enroll your child in Catholic School because you think you cannot afford it there is financial aid and you do not have to be anywhere near the Government Poverty Guidelines to qualify!! Also there is busing available and they have an excellent extended day program available for both before and after the school day. We cannot say enough regarding the high quality education our child is receiving at this school. We could not imagine educating our children any place else.

    If you value virtue along with academic enterprise; if you value grace along with the pursuit of wisdom; if you value faith along with reason; then St. John the Baptist is your kind of school. If you send your children to our school you will be sending them into a place of calm where mind body and spirit are combined with the goal of forming a confident kind and strong child. So come and see for yourself a place of nurturing and respect for simple human dignity in the educational process of your child.

    I am pleased my children go to St John the Baptist. The teachers are genuinely concerned for the children's welfare and academic success. Knowing that God is allowed in this school makes me feel confident my kids are protected . I have no regrets when I say goodbye to my children every morning.

    St John the Baptist school is a small faith based nurturing environment! My oldest went from a struggling student in first grade to scoring in the 90th percentile on Tera Nova Achievement tests at the end of the year! Her reading level went from the 5th percentile to the 85th. My other child went from extreme shyness to blossoming in Kindergarten. When my kids are in school I feel like their teachers are like second moms they teach faith values and academics and they heal hurts and help solve problems all while holding kids accountable and challenging them to learn and grow as valuable human beings! At St John's it's YOUR KIDS THAT COUNT AND ARE VALUED! Not "common core" and PSSA's

    I moved to Monaca apart 2 years ago and made the decision to send my then kindergartner to St. John's....best choice ever. She is now finishing up first grade and I have a son finishing up 3 yr old preschool. I have been pleased with all of the teachers my kids have had so far and the class sizes are great. Make sure you check it out if your are moving out to beaver county I can't brag enough about St John.

    St. John the Baptist School is the only school I would ever consider sending my child. The teachers provide a strong academic curriculum and a lot of one on one attention. My child's Terra Nova scores have averaged in the 95th percentile since Kindergarten. When asked which class she likes the best my daughter responded by listing all of the classes she takes by name. Halfway through the list she stopped and said "I like all the classes!" The faith based atmosphere is evident and I know that the values I instill in my child are echoed while she is at school. St. John the Baptist is the best school in Beaver County by far. Not only are the strong academics present but they also offer a variety of competitive and intramural activities. When you send your child to St. John's you feel like you have joined a family!

    St. John's has been a second family environment for my children. I have had two children attend beginning with 3 year preschool all the way through 8th grade. The children embrace the loving caring environment as they learn. As practicing Catholics the religion classes allow my children to grow in their faith all week long. The school provides a strong academic program with many activities and sports to choose. If you are looking for an alternative to your child's public school please consider St. John the Baptist. Do not let the fear of paying tuition hold you back. The school offers many ways to apply for financial aid.

    This is my daughter's second year at St. John's. Because St. John's is not in our school district we did not make the decsiion lightly. I interviewed the principal at the public school and at St. John's and took my daughter on a tour of both schools so she could be part of the decision making process. St. John's embraced our family while the public school principal only talked of test scores and IEP's for children with "learning issues". After touring both schools we agreed that St. John's was the place for our little bean. This school has exceeded our expectations in all areas. My child is receiving a top-notch education.

    My 4th grader went from scores in the 90's on her standardized achievement tests when she entered in 2nd to average levels after spending two years in this school. Kids spend a lot of time in front of TV & movies during school hours. Teachers in other grades are very supportive and loving with the children but the academics tend to be weak in some areas. Dress code is too liberal and doesn't promote the disciplined atmosphere you would expect in a Catholic school.

    Not being catholic we were initially worried about sending our child to St. John's. He started part way through the year in kindergarten and he fit right in with the other students! Everyone there is kind compassionate and knowledgeable. He is in third grade now and has received a great education! I feel St. John's offers a more challenging course of study than a public school and has the staffing to offer more personalized care and education. Our son goes to mass receives religious education and has never been made to feel 'left out' by not being catholic. St. John's is a wonderful school; it was the best decision we made concerning our son's education!
