An announcement was made to all faculty, staff, parents & guardians, and students on April 28, 2020…

…that this would be the final year for our school. The school was a special place for all students and families, however over the years we saw a steady decline in enrollment and rising costs, which was greatly affected by Covid-19. We have left here a few pages that recall the atmosphere and honoring all our alumni. We wish you every good blessing, whether you are seeking a Catholic school home for your child or just browsing. Napa has two wonderful Catholic schools who remain active and serving students and their families:

     – St. Apollinaris Catholic School

     – Kolbe Academy and Trinity Prep

Our theme during the final year of the school was: “Jesus, you are the light of our lives.” May Our Lord shine on you all the days of your life!

St. John's has been an integral part of my family for four generations. The school was incredibly nurturing and supportive of my children and it prepared them well for high school at Justin-Siena and college at Notre Dame and Saint Mary's College. For us, St. John's has been a wonderful family tradition and I look forward to seeing many future generations reap the benefits that we have over the past 100 years.

"I graduated from Justin-Siena High School this past May with Honors and a GPA average of 4.0. I am currently a first-year student at Saint Mary’s College of California in Moraga, majoring in Justice, Community, and Leadership. I am a part of the Teachers For Tomorrow Program, in hopes of achieving my dream of becoming a teacher upon graduation. I thank my St. John’s family for showing me the way and letting me know that I was able to accomplish these achievements!

When I was a student at St. John's, I didn't necessarily notice the diverse student body. It wasn't until I was enrolled in a Multicultural Counseling class that I realized how amazing it was that my childhood was spent in the midst of so much diversity. I wanted my children to attend St. John's for numerous reasons, but one of the biggest was that their experience with diversity would teach them how to be compassionate and accepting people who treasure the differences among people in addition to always looking for the underlying similarities that exist among us.
