In humble service to God, we are committed to providing the highest standard of Catholic faith formation and academic excellence for the children God has entrusted to us.
St. John Neumann Catholic School was built in 1978 as a parish school for the central Metro-East area. It was founded under the direction and vision of Bishop Joseph McNicholas. His dedication to Catholic education has led to a school that is now fully networked with a state-of-the-art computer lab, library, music room, science lab, full size gymnasium, and dedicated chapel for daily prayer.
The School’s modest beginning consisted of just five classrooms, K through fourth grades. Under the Bishop’s careful direction, a plan of expansion followed by adding an additional classroom each year until the desired goal of eight grades was achieved. St. John Neumann graduated its first class of bright, disciplined, well-educated students in 1983.
The Quilligan Center was added in 1994 in honor of Father Maurice Quilligan, of Mother of Perpetual Help. This facility hosts all indoor athletic activities, all-school masses, serves as the cafeteria for daily lunches, and hosts banquets and other school functions, such as the school auction, school dances, PTU, meetings, and graduation ceremonies.
|The school has steadily grown in stature as one of the areas finest spiritual and educational institutions. A large percentage of our graduates go on to pursue honors level classes and advanced Placement classes in their High schools.
There are 215 students enrolled in PreK-8th Grades for the 2016-17 school year.
