St. John’s Area School

About Our Elementary School

St. John’s Area School is located in Foley, Minnesota and is a part of the St. Cloud Diocese. It is a Catholic elementary school, serving students from Pre-Kindergarten through grade 6 and has open enrollment. We welcome all students and families.

Parents and families are the primary educators of their children, and our goal is to establish an environment that  supports parents and teachers working together on the development of their children. A comprehensive curriculum is in place designed to meet the State of Minnesota and Diocesan Standards. Parents are encouraged to visit and ask questions.

As a Catholic elementary school, our first goal is to help in the faith development of your child through regular religious instruction and participation in daily prayers and weekly Masses. We strongly believe in the education of the whole child, while providing a positive nurturing environment that allows children to experience education in a faith-based atmosphere.
