Middle School


Middle School at SJB provides the complete package as we guide and shape young minds academically, spiritually, and emotionally. The highly qualified faculty collaborates on a daily basis to ensure that students are engaged and challenged while being nurtured in a warm, supportive environment. STREAM is strong at St. John Berchmans. As the original pilot school, SJB’s Science class incorporates NICERC’s (National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center) STEM EDA (Explore, Discovery, Apply) curricula, teaching the engineering design process through hands-on, cross-curricular lessons. Technology is integrated into every classroom, and we have a 4,100 square foot library/technology center. Religion is at the very foundation of who we are as a school and evident throughout every class.
