St. John of Kronstadt Orthodox Christian School is a unique two-room school located in Yakima, Washington, which provides academics within the context of Orthodox Christianity. At St. John's, spiritual learning and growth are the most important aspects of education and are fostered in many ways. The students pray at the beginning and end of the school day and lead Sixth Hour prayers before lunch. The students also attend Matins or a Divine Liturgy once a week at Holy Cross Antiochian Orthodox Church.


Our kindergarten to eighth grade academics include instruction in reading, mathematics, and writing, as well as science, music, art, and history. Students are grouped by ability rather than grade. The small student-to-teacher ratio at St. John's allows individual attention to be paid to the strengths and needs of each student. St. John's is a Washington State approved private school (K-5).

Kontakion to St. John

O thou who from infancy wast chosen by God, and in childhood didst miraculously receive from Him the gift of learning, and wast gloriously called to the priesthood in a vision during sleep: Thou didst prove to be a wondrous shepherd of the Church of Christ, O Father John, namesake of grace. Pray to Christ our God that we all be with thee in the Kingdom of the Heavens.

Troparion to St. John

O Wonderworker living in Christ forever; with love have mercy on them that are in danger; hear thy children who call upon thee with faith; be thou compassionate unto them that hope for aid from thee, O Father John of Kronstadt, our beloved shepherd.
