Saint John's Prep is conveniently located 10 minutes west of St. Cloud within the 2,700 acres of woods and lakes of Saint John's University's campus in Collegeville, Stearns County, central Minnesota.
Co-ed Day & Boarding Programs for 6-12th Grade Students:
We provide a college-preparatory curriculum for students, empowering them to become inquiring learners, appreciative of their heritage, responsive to the challenges of the future, and committed to preserving and advancing our knowledge, culture and democratic freedoms.
Our challenging curriculum with Middle and High School Programs consists of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, Advanced Placement Courses and College Preparation Courses for PSAT, ACT and SAT.
International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program:
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme is an optional two-year program of rigorous learning during a student's junior and senior years. Students study in six academic areas: Language; Second Language; Mathematics; Science; Individuals and Society; and the Arts.
In addition, the programme has three core requirements that are included to broaden the educational experience and challenge students to apply their knowledge and understanding. The extended essay is a requirement for students to engage in independent research through an in-depth study of a question relating to one of the subjects they are studying.
Theory of knowledge is a course designed to encourage each student to reflect on the nature of knowledge by critically examining different ways of knowing (perception, emotion, language and reason) and different kinds of knowledge (scientific, artistic, mathematical and historical).
Creativity, action, service requires that students actively learn from the experience of doing real tasks beyond the classroom. Students can combine all three components or do activities related to each one of them separately. Students take examinations at the end of their senior year. Based on their scores, students may receive an IB diploma.
College Preparation Courses:
During their junior and senior years students take intensive prep courses for:
- PSAT testing
- ACT/SAT testing
Advanced Placement Courses:
We offer a wide range of AP courses in all subject areas.
The Fine Arts Division is a vital component of the curriculum at Saint John’s Preparatory School. Courses offer an arts experience that is both sensitive to students’ needs as well as appreciative of their cultures.
Music, theatre and visual and performance arts are recognized as fundamental elements of a Benedictine education because they encourage students to integrate aesthetic values with other important value systems within a comprehensive and interconnected context.
