President’s Welcome

On behalf of St. John’s Northwestern Academies (SJNA), greetings and thank you for visiting our website. St. John’s Northwestern offers an independent, co-educational, international boarding and day school for students in grades 6-12. Families who are attracted to SJNA put an emphasis on their children’s ethical and moral compass, as well as seek a true partnership with an institution to develop self-reliant, self-motivated 21st century leaders.

Robert J. Fine, Jr.


As a parent and grandparent, I know the selection of your child’s school is an important one that is not taken lightly. We, at St. John’s Northwestern Academies seek to partner with parents/guardians as their child grows and matures. As the saying goes, “It takes a village to raise a child,” and we want to assure you that the skills, values, and character development your child needs to be successful are embedded in our culture.

I appreciate how important it is to find the right school for your child, where the teachers see their potential, and are dedicated to developing it. As an educator, I could not be more proud to lead St. John’s Northwestern Academies. This is a place where leaders are formed. It is a community whose foundational pillars include: academic excellence, spiritual and character development, athletics/wellness, and our signature leadership training.

At SJNA, we understand that you have many schools to choose from, but we are confident that our unique program will bring out the best in your child… the best, which culminates in self-reliant, self-motivated, and morally sound decision makers. In short, we are producing 21st century leaders.

I invite you to contact us and learn more about St. John’s Northwestern Academies.

Developing leaders since 1884!
