Dear Bosco and Chesterton Families,


Our New York State Governor has closed all schools until April 14th.  As that falls in the middle of Easter Week and our whole community is working so hard to maintain a semblance of consistency with the work of school, we will keep the full break and return on April 20th.


Please don't hestitate to reach out if you have any concerns.


God Bless and stay safe!

SJB/CAS Headmaster



 SJBS is committed to preserving the Pre-K through eighth grade model because we believe that the transitional middle school years are best served by fostering leadership of younger children rather than imitation of older students.  Our sixth-to-eighth grade middle school program also welcomes new students who are seeking a rigorous preparation for high school.



With our patron, St. John Bosco, we know that education is a matter of the heart; the relationship between teacher and student is fundamental.  Our faculty are men and women of faith who are excited about learning. Intentionally small classes foster a family atmosphere and allow extensive discussions that help produce clear thinkers, speakers, and writers.  Our students respond with great enthusiasm.


SJBS operates independently of the diocesan parochial system and is not affiliated with any parish.  However, we maintain open and cordial relations with the Diocese of Rochester, and recognize and respect the proper jurisdiction of the local bishop in matters relevant to instruction in the doctrines and beliefs of the Catholic faith.



St. John Bosco Schools received recognition as a fully accredited member of the National Association of Private Catholic Independent Schools (NAPC*IS) in November 2011.
