Most Grace Rev. Dr. G. Rajakumar, Founder Chairman, was an educationist, a man with vision and foresight and above all a simple, humble and God fearing human being who followed the Christian faith. He was largely responsible for the high-soaring growth of St. John’s since 1968. On the 25th of April 2006, this great but unassuming man left this earth to enter into eternal glory in the heavenly kingdom, leaving behind him a mighty educational empire.

St. John’s Academy is a high profile & competitive school under the banner of St. John’s in Tamil Nadu. St. John’s family is proud to offer two residential schools within one campus in the City of Chennai where SJIRS caters to the National & International Scenario, and SJA caters to the State Scenario.
SJA will suit Tamil parents settled in Middle-East and Non-Resident Indian parents originating from the state of Tamil Nadu, who want their children to pursue their Higher Education in Tamil Nadu with the Tradition, Discipline, and Culture of Tamil Nadu.
The Philosophy of SJA is built on the fact that it should be a learning school. Being a learning school,
- We aim towards a shared vision.
- We are flexible to adapt.
- We are democratic.
- We work on the principle of self-actualization.
- We focus on knowledge management.
- We use technology.
- We develop a professional approach.
- We center on quality.
Aims & Objectives
- To impart sound education with English as the medium of instruction.
- To instill social values inspired by needs around us.
- To develop the overall personality of the child taking into consideration the mental, physical, social and spiritual needs of the child.
- To inculcate values, attitudes and habits that focuses on social order, human dignity, political and economic justice.
The Pattern of Education - SJA
We make education interesting for the children by following a definite advanced pattern of education that would make students think and become active learners - not mere passive learners, who store information in their memory and reproduce it at the time of examinations. Ours will be a formal center of learning for preparing them for the larger life outside the academic premises later.
We strive towards inculcating creative methods and helping the children to move towards the set goals, to promote values and morals which are essential for a healthy growth.
To comply with the above stated ambitious venture, we take with us the tool, the curriculum as recommended by the Tamil Nadu State Matriculation and Higher Secondary Syllabus prepared as per the New Education Policy based on the recommendation of the Yash Pal Committee. The new syllabus aims to reduce the burden of academics and enhance the quality of education.
