Offering the highest quality K-12 education to the Orthodox Christian community
Accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), the Saint John of San Francisco Orthodox Academy is an Eastern Orthodox Christian, coeducational, non-profit, college-preparatory, full-time day school founded in 1994 for grades K-12. Our academic calendar is uniquely scheduled around the calendar of feast days and services of the Orthodox Church.

The Academy expects its pupils to be active in Church life; to develop their Christian consciousness; to practice prayer and follow Orthodox religious traditions; to maintain healthy and obedient relations with their parents, relatives, and teachers; to strive for excellence in intellectual pursuits; and to grow as useful members of society who practice true Christian love towards others and true Orthodox piety towards God.
