Welcome to St. John Chrysostom School On-Line. 
Our Mission: What we're all about!

  • For ninety years St. John Chrysostom has been dedicated to serving the families of the many immigrant populations that have found a home here. We work to provide an excellent education in a non-violent milieu. Our Catholic faith is the foundation of all we do. We welcome children of many faiths, nationalities and ethnic backgrounds. All are respected here.

The Dominican Sisters of Sparkill

  • Sparkill Dominican Sisters came to St. John's when the school opened in 1914. If you were to visit our Sisters in the Motherhouse, and ask about St. John Chrysostom School, you would see a smile on every face!  Hundreds of us  have taught here! They all loved the work they did, and the people they did it for. We have a hundred years of stories handed down! 

Who we are!

  • Who are we?  What have we done?

  • We minister in 13 states, and in Pakistan and Peru.

Women Making A Difference

  • We have martyrs in Pakistan, other Sisters who lost their lives  serving in Central America.
  • We teach in schools from Pre-K to College. Sister Elizabeth is a long time teacher at Cathedral High School, and currently Principal.

  • We are nurse practitioners, social workers, nurses.

  • We are housing managers for the elderly, campus ministers and counselors.

  • We are 400 dedicated Religious Women, and we have taught your children in schools and in Parish programs.

  • We work with the poorest, and with those who will be counted among the Church's future leaders and supporters.

  • Christ is the center of our lives, and our strength, and the motive for all we do.
    A Joyful Dominican Sister
