St. John's: a tradition|
of academic excellence
St. John the Baptist Catholic School is fully accredited by the Minnesota Non-Public School Accrediting Association. The parochial school has been part of the Vermillion community for more than 50 years and has a long tradition of academic excellence. During that time, numerous families have witnessed three generations of students proudly graduate and then perform exceptionally well at Hastings Middle School and Hastings High School, a continuing testimony to the school's quality education. Parishioners have firmly supported their school since they began building it in 1957. In October 2005, a new $1.1 million, 8,200-square-foot addition was completed. The addition includes a new classroom/science room, library/music room, conference room, a large community room and office space.

|We provide busing farther than you think|
Our busing service was expanded in 2012. With the encouragement of Superintendent Tim Collins, our parish and school purchased "add-on" service to our already-existing Hastings School District bus service. This additional service helps us reach the communities of Vermillion Township, Marshan Township, portions of Ravenna Township, Miesville, New Trier, Hampton and far eastern parts of Empire Township. It is provided by the Hastings Bus Company, and services only St. John the Baptist School students in grades K-6. Parents are encouraged to contact parent volunteer Julie Strommen with any questions.
