St. John the Baptist School


At St. John The Baptist Catholic school, God is the center of our education. Our school is open to ALL students of any denomination and boasts a strong Christian-based education that caters to families of all backgrounds and religious beliefs. Your child will be allowed to express themselves individually while learning about foundational lessons in prayer, loving one another, walking with Christ and attending services to worship and learn about the common God we all share.

In the last 22 years, St.John's students have accounted for 55% of Frankfort Community High School's Valedictorians and many additional Salutatorians. We believe that this was primarily due to our small classrooms, advanced educational opportunities, and high education standards.

Catholic Schools Week is January 27 through February 1.
The week will begin with Mass on Sunday, January 27 at 10:00 A.M.
A brunch will be served at the school following Mass.
