Boarding Building


Become a part of our boarding family

In Shannon House on the St. John’s campus, our boarders are welcomed by Valérie Charlent, our boarding house parent. She provides the care and support for boarders of every age: from help with homework to leisure activities and duties to keep the boarding house spick & span. Boarders at St. John’s are a part of a wonderful community in which they learn to be themselves, to become independent and to live with others. An invaluable experience, and a great foundation for their further lives.
