Environmental Literacy:


St. John the Baptist Catholic School has established an environmental literacy program that all students in 4th grade through 8th grade. We believe reaching beyond the classroom walls is critical to the educational process. These excusions are operated by non-profit programs who've structured standards-based, Science or Social Studies programming. These opportunities also serve to build community amongst our students and an appreciation for God's natural beauty. Our trips, attended by parent chaparones and school staff, include the following:

4th Grade: Coloma Outdoor Discovery School

5th Grade: San Francisco Academy of Science

6th Grade: Walker Creek Science Camp

7th Grade: Marin Headlands

8th Grade: Yosemite National Park
