St. John Neumann Catholic School is expanding at a time when other schools are contracting and cutting. Their vision to add four classrooms, storage rooms, and office space began in 2003. By the 2008–2009 school year, the time was right. The school partnered with Pizutti Builders, and plans began to take shape.



SJN’s fifth and sixth graders will move into four new classrooms by late fall with the area underneath designated for storage and office space. These additional rooms can easily be converted to classrooms as the school continues to grow.

St. John Neumann will offer special thanks to generous contributors by having engraved plaques placed at the entrance of the new addition.

Additionally, any donor can purchase bricks and have names engraved in them. They will also be displayed in the new building.

Donations will be accepted for purchase of bricks and plaques until September 30 to meet the engraving deadline.

Saint John Neumann is a Catholic School located in Northeast Columbia. The student population is 365 in grades pre–school through sixth. The school is an educational ministry of the Parish at Saint John Neumann Catholic Church.
