St. Jean

Our spacious school creates the perfect backdrop for your party, wedding reception, baby or bridal shower, conference, fundraiser, workshop, lecture, photo shoot, live production, co-op shareholder meeting or other private event.


St. Jean Baptiste is a gorgeous, ninety-year old school building that is beautifully appointed and as fresh and gorgeous as it was in 1929 when it was built. The school is very much open for potential rentals that do not interfere with the work and the mission of the school. With pale blue walls, vaulted ceilings, mosaic tile on the walls, this is a unique gem of New York City building arts.Three floors of exquisite classrooms - with wood finishes - rise above the first floor elegance as described.
There is also a new, nine-year-old wing of the school, with a state of the art fitness center, a brand-new cafeteria, "The Wave Cafe," an outside courtyard and new classrooms as well. In the "old" wing the school, there is also an elegantly appointed auditorium (capacity 450) with both stain glass windows and original floors, but also state of the art sound and lighting.
