Lo, Thy care for thy flock in its sojourn / prefigured the supplication which thou dost ever offer up for the whole world. / Thus do we believe, having come to know thy love, O holy hierarch and wonderworker John. / Wholly sanctified by God through the ministry of the all-pure Mysteries / and thyself ever strengthened thereby,/ thou didst hasten to the suffering, O most gladsome Healer, // Hasten now also to the aid of us who honor thee with all our heart.
- Tropar to St. John

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. Located in the spiritual heart of the Bay Area Orthodox community, we attract students from various ethnic and linguistic backgrounds. Our classes are conducted in English.
St. John’s aims to participate with parents in the development of Orthodox children who are well informed in both liberal arts and modern sciences, and are equipped with the knowledge of Orthodox faith and ethics that will enable them to live as devout Orthodox Christians.
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.
