Saint John’s Prep is an independent college preparatory school guided by Benedictine values for students in grades 6-12. Students are challenged to engage deeply in learning; foster and participate in an inclusive community; and grow into adults who are intellectually adventurous, ethically sure-footed, and generous of heart and spirit.
The Saint Michael Hall renovation created a space where young women and men, residential and day students, can interact to achieve academic success, personal growth, and lifelong friendships. The renovation created two separate living spaces within the existing Saint Michael Hall, a young women’s village and a young men’s village. The new construction and updates include renovations for every student room, a massive gourmet kitchen, two new kitchenettes, new entertainment nooks and community rooms, new bathrooms and laundry facilities, a new multipurpose tech study space, a new gas fireplace and security enhancements for the entryways. The updates to Saint Michael Hall created a first-class residential facility to complement the first-class academic program and co-educational activities. The construction also includes four new, two-bedroom apartments for staff and their families.
