St. Jean Baptiste High School is committed to the education of young women of diverse strengths and backgrounds.  A rigorous academic program prepares its graduates to excel in college and in their future professions. After the completion of her four years at St. Jean’s, a graduate will receive a St. Jean Baptiste High School Diploma in addition to a New York State Regents Diploma.

Assistant Principal of Student Affairs / Dean of Students Daniel Linehan, Principal Sister Maria Cassano, and Assistant Principal of Academic Affairs Maximilian Medveser.

Because St. Jean’s is a college preparatory school, its academic program offers students  the opportunity to experience the rigors of college level classes. Through our AP and bridge program with Saint Joseph’s College, students may earn up to 33 college credits.


A committed faculty, a supportive team of guidance counselors, and  small class sizes allow the young women of St. Jean’s to grow and reach their full potential. Thanks to St. Jean’s location in the heart of Manhattan, our faculty and students can take advantage of the great culture and learning opportunities present in one of the most creative and lively cities in the world.  Students have opportunities throughout their four years to learn outside of the classroom in some of the most respected institutions, museums, and hospitals in the world.
