This year, the St. John of San Francisco Orthodox Academy begins its school year with 'Week One': an orientation of the first week of school around the life of our community, getting to know fellow students, teachers and staff, and coming to feel a part of this unique environment. A series of special activities will orient students to our theme for the 2011-2012 school year: "'A Light that Shines': Serving God, the Church & our Fellow Man," and preparing them for a wonderful year ahead.
