I moved to the area because of the Navy almost 6 years ago. When our boys were old enough to go to school we assumed we would go to one of the good local public schools. Then I heard about St. Johns Country Day School so I toured the campus and also checked out the local A rated public elementary school. Though the public school would be adequate for all of the basics a kid needs to learn, SJCDS seemed to be in a different league and the public school couldn't compete. I want my kids to have the best possible opportunities to succeed in life. Once you compare what is offered both in and out of the classroom at SJCDS to other schools in the area (including other independent schools), I have no doubt you'll see what we found there. My kids are thriving and we feel so fortunate to have discovered this gem!
I Love the courses that Citizens High School offers for a high school diploma. My older son took a few courses & then got impatient & got his GED. I am planning on starting early & getting a diploma for my 13 year old. I love the flexibility of taking a course at your own pace. This is perfect if you want to start your student early in a subject that they are strong in & above grade level. I like the fact that most of the course work is not on the Internet because it is just too tempting for most kids to start playing games while you are not watching when their school is on the Internet. Hopefully I will be ordering a course soon after the Holidays. Dawn Hoppe
Everything about this school is RIGHT! St. Johns Country Day School has over 50 years of succes and it is a pleasure to have all of my children attend this school. Every school is unique in its own way and the trait that seperates SJCDS from others is the nuturing atmosphere your child is surrounded in all day
If you are searching for a private school in Northeast FLorida, don't miss touring St. Johns Country Day School. The school's curriculum is college prepatory with incredible programs in academics, arts and athletics. St. Johns provides a family like atmosphere serving children from PreK - 12.
Excellent school for children with autism and other related disabilities. Staff is very knowledgeable and offers moral support to the entire family (not just the student).
