Welcome to St. John the Evangelist Catholic School, a Transitional Kindergarten through Eighth Grade coeducational Catholic school located in Carmichael, California. We are a ministry of St. John the Evangelist Parish and are a part of the Diocese of Sacramento.
Throughout these pages, you will find information about our full-day Kindergarten program, and our excellent spiritual, academic, and enrichment opportunities available to our students. We are fully accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
SJE is the best environment to foster an excellent educational and family experience. My wife and I are alumni of the school and I am a credentialed teacher in the state of California. I am continually impressed with the challenging academic programs that SJE offers and the care and dedication the staff executes in this endeavor. The teaching staff is among the best and proves it year in and year out with students achieving high entrance exam scores and top results in the areas Academic Decathlon Event. Our athletic program has been and remains the best among the PAL. I have three boys that have either graduated from or attend SJE, and I am very proud of the progress they have made as young men. I attribute a great deal of this to SJE.
I have 3 children enrolled at SJE and feel blessed that we have the choice to send our children to this fabulous school! From K-8th grade our oldest has received a stellar education. He has been accepted to Jesuit due to the fabulous education he has received. If you are looking for a school where your child feels special, confident, creates lasting friendships, learns about religion, art, music, drama, becomes a Christian athlete, and feels at home, then consider SJE for your family!
We had two children graduate from Saint Johns and one still attending. If one could measure the success of the school by the final result, one could only give the school five stars. My daughters are wonderful young ladies who are doing very well at St. Francis. One of them challenged the 3 AP class rule and this year is successfully taking 4 AP classes. The school says it teaches the whole student - with athletics, drama, and music and most importantly their faith - and it does. They have many charitable learning opportunities that instill great Christian values.
Moving my children from their local Catholic school in Taiwan to their first American school amid a small group of close-knit classmates may under normal circumstances have posed some risks. Anything could have gone awry. Yet as days turned to weeks we were frequently surprised by the gestures from an array of classmates (and staff) to welcome and include them. We saw the unmistakable outline of a wider effort by parents and teachers to ensure our Children’ positive adjustment. They benefited from the accumulation of Christian values and habits among their classmates.
