Primary School

Primary School

Our primary school includes Transitional Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade.

Beginning in the 2022-2023 school year, our Transitional Kindergarten will be a full-day program! To be eligible for our TK program, your child must turn 5 years old any time during the school year (there is no longer a “5 years old by January 1st” requirement). For those with summer birthdays, we will discuss the best placement and path for your child on an individual basis. Each child is different! We want to work with you to make sure your child is in the correct academic and social-emotional placement.

Our Kindergarten is also a full-day program. To be eligible for our Kindergarten program, your child must be 5 years old by September 1st.

St. John the Evangelist School has one of the highest performing early literacy programs in the Sacramento Diocese. Our teachers work collaboratively to build a solid foundation in reading, phonics, mathematics, and executive functioning skills, fostering great learning habits for years to come.

Students in our primary school study core subjects as well as PE, art, music, and Spanish.
