childcare preschools schools

We are frequently asked about early childhood programs and recommendations for child care, preschools, and schools around St. Augustine. As parents ourselves, we understand that picking a school or child care center that fits your child’s and your family’s needs can be an overwhelming task. No one should have to start this type of research on their own, so we’ve done a little bit of the hard work for you. St. Augustine Moms is excited to share our first guide to local child care centers, preschools and schools in and around St. Augustine! We hope this guide will help you make the right decision for your family! If you have any questions about specific schools we encourage you to ask moms in our neighborhood group about their thoughts and experiences. Good luck on this new adventure!

ST. JOHN'S ACADEMY

As a Classical school, the students of St. John’s Academy are taught in a way that is academically rigorous. Classical education is organized according to the centuries-old method of the Trivium wherein students are taught on a model corresponding with their natural physical, mental, and emotional pattern of development.  In addition to being based on the Trivium model of education, the instructional approach at St. John’s Academy features a traditional, Christ-centered curriculum stressing basic skills and critical analysis. St. John’s Academy also recognizes that genuine self-confidence arises only through self-respect –the result of academic accomplishment, right behavior, and proper regard for others. We cultivate a learning environment that encourages full development in all these areas. Our goal as a classical Christian school is to challenge students to be life-long lovers of learning without apology or contradiction to the truth of Scripture. Our motto, Training Virtuous Scholars prepared for the future … destined for eternity.
