St. John of Kronstadt Orthodox Christian School is a small, state-approved private school serving grades K-7 in the Yakima Valley. Our mission is to provide an academically strong education in a nurturing Christian environment. We have served families in Yakima since 2002, and our students consistently show proficiency and mastery of state and national standards, as measured by the Iowa Test of Basic Skills and Smarter Balanced assessments.

We teach personal responsibility and accountability, self-discipline, and Orthodox Christian morality and ethics. All education, when correctly done and properly understood, reflects the majesty, order, and goodness of God. Our curriculum includes instruction in science, math, reading and writing, geography and history, literature, art and music, and is aligned to the Common Core standards.

We would love to talk with you about St. John’s! Please send an email or call our office for more information.

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.
