About UsWelcome to St. John Catholic School! As the Premier Catholic School in Carroll County, we are proud to serve families throughout the county, offering Pre-School (3 and 4 year olds) through 8th Grade. We are located on the beautiful multi-acre campus of St. John Roman Catholic Parish in Westminster, Maryland, just off Englar Road and Route 140. Our campus has rolling, grassy meadows and includes the St. John Catholic Church, School, Parish Center, Portico Reception Hall and Rectory.
We provide an engaging, nurturing and exemplary education-one child at a time. As part of the Baltimore Archdiocesan School System, we are proud to provide a Christ-centered education that is academically excellent and empowers students to reach their full potential –spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially, and morally. Faith formation is our foundation and is woven into our lives with daily prayer, religion lessons, devotion and weekly celebration of the Eucharist at our Weekly Children’s Mass.
