St John’s Grammar School is a community. It is a partnership of dedicated teachers, students and parents.

Students benefit enormously from the individually focussed education provided by our dedicated, passionate staff. We strive to make all groups in the School community feel they are an integral part of our School and encourage participation, involvement and a sense of belonging.

We aim to offer a safe, nurturing, welcoming and positive environment for our students. Our picturesque Adelaide Hills setting provides unique, natural surroundings which enhance the wellbeing of students and staff alike.

Student successes are celebrated in the School community. Leadership and learning opportunities are readily available and encouraged – for staff and students. Extensive and regular communication between teachers, parents and students ensures close, informative and supportive relationships are established, enhancing the community feel.

Individual skills and strengths are encouraged and developed. We have a culture of positive achievement in which all students are expected to do their best. Academically, on the sporting field and in pursuits such as debating, music, choral eisteddfods and drama productions, high standards are expected and most often achieved.

Students thrive in our caring environment and by the time they leave St John’s Grammar, they are confident, well educated, mature young adults ready to take on the challenges, and successes, of the next phase of their life.

We look forward to welcoming you to the St John’s Grammar community.
