St John’s College is a world-class Christian African school founded in 1898. The school accepts boys from Grade 0 to Grade 12 into the Pre-Preparatory, Preparatory and the College, and accepts boys and girls in The Bridge Nursery School and Sixth Form.
St John’s numbers among South Africa’s pre-eminent schools, with a reputation for excellence extending well beyond the country’s borders.
Based in Houghton, Johannesburg, St John’s follows the rich traditions of the Anglican Church. Teaching is based on sound values and morals and the Anglican ethos of respect and care, while also celebrating the traditions of other faith communities to encourage mutual understanding and tolerance.
St John’s is an African centre of excellence – the strong commitment to academic excellence is balanced by a diverse and rich extra-curricular cultural and sporting programme, to produce young individuals who are inquiring, enthusiastic, tolerant and resilient. We nurture today’s children to lead tomorrow’s world rightly trained in body, mind and character.
