The Parish and School Community of St. John the Apostle thanks Fr. Bob for his 14 dedicated years as our Pastor. His retirement is effective September 1, 2020. Due to COVID 19 restrictions there will be no reception.
Dear Families, Friends, and Supporters: The COVID-19 crisis has put Catholic schools throughout the U.S., including those in the Newark Archdiocese at serious risk of not re-opening in the fall and being permanently closed.
Thanks to your recent advocacy, proposed legislation entitled Alexander-Scott "School Choice Now Act" has been introduced that will give emergency funding to scholarship organizations in each state and provide permanent federal tax credits for contributions to scholarship granting organizations. Please ask our US Senators to include the School Choice Now Act in the next COVID relief package. Please click through to our Voter Voice system to put your message in front of the US Senate! Voter Voice - NJ Catholic Conference THE ASK: 1. That private school students receive Equity in COVID-19 relief services offered to public schools 2. Tuition assistance for struggling families 3. Tax deductions or credits for families' education expenses to help in the struggle to pay for school tuition now.
THE ACTION: Please click through to this link: Voter Voice - NJ Catholic Conference to follow the prompts on NJ Catholic Conference's Voter Voice.
Please do this as soon as possible as this is a fast-moving issue where the impact of our voices can be heard and make a difference for our families. It only takes a few minutes to ask our Senators to help our Catholic School Families stay in their Catholic schools.
THE RATIONALE: It is important that our leaders in Washington hear from us how important Catholic school is for our children. The School Choice Now Act will help our schools be there for our students, families, and teachers. Our voices are needed now.
Thank you for answering the call to support our students by advocating for them!
Please consider a contribution to replenish the Sister Donna Marie O'Brien fund. This long-standing fund provides tuition assistance to SJA families who have experienced unexpected financial hardship. Now more than ever these funds are needed for our students whose lives have been personally affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Please donate what you can so these students can continue their Catholic education journey, surrounded by the love and support of their SJA family.

Inspiring mind and soul, Saint John the Apostle School is a faith-centered, academic community based on the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. We're a 2011 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and Middle States Association accredited school. We are committed to serving all, regardless of race, nationality, or religion. Our goal is to focus on academic excellence as well as to instill spiritual, moral, and social values to prepare students for the future.
The people of Saint John the Apostle School community form the cornerstone of its success. From the moment you enter the doors of the school, you feel the presence of God's love. This is particularly apparent in the main building of the campus, as the church is located within the school. The spiritual nature of the school is enhanced by its traditions that strengthen its roots and heritage.
The strengths of the administration, faculty, and students together form a bond unique to St. John the Apostle School. Over 26 faculty members cumulatively have an average of 16 years of teaching experience. This "strength in numbers" is believed to have a profound effect on the outcome of student achievement. Aware that no two children learn alike, differentiated instruction of various modalities enhances the learning environment for the student.
