THANK YOU! Your gifts enable exciting things to happen at St John the Baptist Catholic School!
Our rural Catholic school has been part of the Vermillion community for almost 60 years and has a long tradition of academic excellence. We have a well-known history of producing smart, compassionate, faith-filled students who graduate from St John the Baptist School and become the top academic achievers at the Hastings-area middle schools, the Hastings High School, and other public and private schools. Many teachers and administrators say they can spot a St John's student in a large group because our students are polite, well-behaved, and disciplined.
Our donors (like YOU!) and strategic partners continue to make amazing things happen in rural, faith-based education. Last year, we raised $125,000 to begin implementation of several game-changing programs. Our students are happy and excited to learn! Our faculty is committed and eager to use technology and varying instruction! And our tireless volunteers love working together to make great things happen for our students and families!
Check out our new programs:
- State of the art technology in every classroom through rock-solid WIFI, SmartBoards, robotics kits, 1:1 Chromebooks, and technology-in-the-classroom training for teachers
- Establishment of a "maker" program for budding entrepreneurs (Google this, you'll love it!)
- Foreign language offering
- Resource Center to meet the needs of struggling and accelerated students, small group instruction and 1:1 tutoring
- Welcome Scholarships to all new students in 1-6th grade, all kindergarteners, and all preschoolers
Thank you for funding our investment to make St John the Baptist Catholic School an amazing education offering for many more generations!
