The curriculum at St. John the Evangelist School follows the standards for the Diocese of Sacramento and the State of California. Students in Kindergarten receive daily instruction in the following core subjects:

  • Religion
  • Language Arts (Reading, Phonics, Storytelling, Writing)
  • Math
  • Social Studies
  • Science

Specialized teachers offer weekly enrichment opportunities in:

  • Spanish

During the academic year, the Kindergarten program also takes time to participate in cultural celebrations, including Chinese New Year, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Mardi Gras, and Cinco de Mayo, to name a few.


Each student in Kindergarten is mentored by their sixth grade “buddy”. They attend weekly Mass together and participate in different fun activities during the school year.
