  • Welcome

    St. John the Baptist was the first Catholic School established in McHenry County.  The first church, made of logs in 1843 served a dual purpose as church and school.    

    We are proud to be celebrating our 173rd year of serving the Johnsburg and surrounding community.  If you are new to the area, or are looking to send your child to a private school, let us show you why so many families enjoy the St. John School atmosphere and campus.

    Our Catholic school can provide your child(ren) the opportunity to grow with Christ at a time when they are most vulnerable to influence and temptation.  At St. John the Baptist, we believe there is nothing more important to your child's development than the word of God. Children of all faiths are welcome.

    We invite you to:
