St. John's Military School is proud of their drill team. The drill team competes with various military schools. A lot of time and training goes into the drill team. It is an excellent opportunity for a cadet to become involved in something extra curricular.
St. John's Military school football team had an amazing season this year. For the first time in Muleskinner history, the team made it to the playoffs. St. John's is proud of the many organized athletics available for cadets.
As with all of our extracurricular activities, St. John's has excellent coaching staff, and cadets have a great time at sports as well.
Our cadets experience many different aspects of Military life.  Shown here is a cadet during a team building exercise giving us a thumbs up about his experience.
St. John's is very proud of it's involvement in Community. Pictured here are cadets playing at the POW/MIA ceremony held annually in Salina. All cadets attend, and our band members participate as well. It is a fulfilling and rewarding experience.
Cadets enjoying Ping Pong on the 3 tables located in the Jack Vanier Hall recreation center. There is also two movie rooms, pool tables, and weight room. This facility provides a place for cadets to relax and feel at home.
Shown in this photo are cadets parading around the 'teardrop' during the forming of the 126th corps of cadets.
