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 170th 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 learn more about the history of the school, click on the About, History page...

Catholic Schools Week tends to show us the tangibles of a private education, but as this article states, its the Love that the children receive from the staff and other students that adds to the success.
