For more than 50 years, St. John’s has been providing a high-quality education to expatriate and local families of the greater Brussels area. We are proud of the impact that we have had on generations of students.

 


The school was founded in 1964 by the FCJ - a Catholic order of nuns, and throughout the years has built its reputation for excellence on a foundation of exceptional academic programmes as well as athletics and the visual and performing arts.

An early adopter of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, our school now has over 40 years of IB experience. St. John's offers the full range of Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP).

Since 2016, St. John's is part of Inspired, a global group of over 70 premium schools.

 

We are in the town of Waterloo, a cosy town of about 30,000 inhabitants with a family feel. With over 20 percent of the population being expatriates, this is a very friendly, inclusive, and easy place to live, where everyone is welcome into the community. 

At St. John’s, we believe that high quality education encompasses academic rigour, sporting and artistic opportunities and the well-being of the entire learning community.

The school is a caring and joyful space in which students are supported, challenged and their unique talents can be encouraged and nurtured.  

We believe it is critical that students engage with the complexity of real-world issues.  We know that we are preparing students for the future but also that the future depends upon the students who graduate from St. John’s.
