St. John's Prep student-athletes excel in the classroom while leading in interscholastic competition. St. John's Prep believes in empowering student-athletes who can succeed on the court, excel in the classroom and engage in the community. SJP student athletes are held to a high standard and the athletics department is a committed partner to the many additional student resources on campus to help student athletes maintain the SJP standard of excellence.
Our goals are to help all our students to achieve academic excellence; to foster a community of lifelong learners; to equip students to meet the challenges of a changing world; and to encourage our students to develop responsibility to themselves and their community. Athletics provide an opportunity to extend the values and ideals developed in the classroom and constantly strive towards the development of a well-rounded individual.
Interscholastic athletics is a very important component of the educational experience at St. John's Prep. The purpose of our athletic program is to promote an opportunity for the student-athlete to learn and grow in ways not available in a traditional classroom setting. We are preparing our students for life. We hold our students to a very high standard when it comes to representing themselves, the St. John’s Prep community and their family.
Student athletes at St. John's Prep strive for good sportsmanship, develop self-confidence, learn personal responsibility and respect and achieve success in a competitive environment. Our athletes are expected to develop respect for others, exhibit self-control, assume responsibility for their actions to be modest in victory and gracious in defeat. We believe the more our young men and women become involved in athletics, the greater contribution we can make in the development of better citizens.
