student life

brotherhood begins here.

Being a Titan isn’t merely about receiving a superior education; it’s also about making friends, developing social awareness and growing as a young man. Our diverse student body represents many races and ethnicities, and over 75 different elementary schools throughout the area, which broadens the horizons of our students and better prepares them for college and the real world. 

Clubs and Activities

Titans are challenged to be open to growth in their time at St. John’s. This is something we strive to instill in every graduate. To achieve this tenet, students are required to join at least one club or activity, overseen by a faculty member. Clubs meet routinely at school and as frequently as needed outside school hours. Club offerings change to meet student needs but consistently range from academic clubs such as Creative Writing, Marine Biology, Wall Street, and Latin, to others such as Ski and Snowboarding, Film & Good Eats, Fly Fishing, Chocolate Appreciation, and dozens more. The possibilities reach far and wide and are only limited by student imagination and initiative.

An All-Boys Setting

Boys are noisy.  Boys are active.  Boys love competition. We give students access to many campus amenities throughout the school day to channel these qualities. Titans are able to connect daily through ping pong, spike ball, chess, basketball, Smash Bros, and other informal activities available to all students during lunch periods and juniors and seniors during free periods. Titans can also take advantage of the spectacular campus grounds by taking activities outside or just enjoy being outdoors.

Music

Through academic offerings and performance ensembles, Titans have every opportunity to be developed as competent and confident musicians. Faculty members place emphasis on teamwork, a commitment to excellence, unselfishness, and a passion for music’s important role in the enrichment of the human spirit. Students can perform with the Marching Titans, Symphonic Band, Basketball Pep Band, Pit Orchestra, Men’s Chorus, Vocal Ensemble, and Liturgical Instrumental Ensemble.

Although technology has drastically changed the academic landscape, what is learned from the simple act of creative expression has not. There is a rich history and standard of excellence in theatrical productions at St. John’s, an aspect of student life named for a Jesuit lecturer and director St. Edmund Campion. Like Jesuit schools around the globe, theater has always been vital to curriculum. Titans, as well as students from NDA, SUA, and other area schools, can audition for the fall play or spring musical or join the behind-the-scenes team to bring the stage to life!
