St. John Berchmans has four divisions within the school. Early Childhood is comprised of students in Preschool, our Elementary program consists of students in Kindergarten through grade 3, Middle School serves students in grades 4-5, and the Junior High is made up of students in grades 6-8.
SJB offers a variety of PK options. Starting at age 3, your child can go to school 2, 3, 4, or 5 days a week with the half-day schedule (8am-11am) or full-day schedule (8am-3pm). Most of the core content and all Specials occur in the morning in order to serve those students who only attend half day. In addition to lunch and naptime, the full day schedule offers enhanced learning opportunities in the afternoon. We intentionally mix our PK3 and PK4 year olds in order to enrich the learning experience of the 3 year olds and build leadership skills among the 4 year olds. The teachers constantly differentiate their instruction in order to meet the individual academic and social needs of each student. PK4 students are encouraged to attend 5 full days in order to best prepare them for Kindergarten but ultimately it is up to each individual family to choose which PK schedule works best.
