Living in Jacksonville
The Visit Jacksonville website offers a great introduction into the many advantages to be had in living in Jacksonville. Situated as it is along the final bend of the St. Johns River as it makes its way to the Atlantic, the sprawling geography of Jacksonville features everything from riverscape, beachfront, and one of the nation's largest urban park systems. The growing local economy feeds a local population that is equally diverse, spread across distinctive historic neighborhoods that radiate out from a growing downtown along the northern bend of the St. Johns.
The campuses that comprise our school likewise mirror the diverse landscape of Jacksonville: we feature two Lower School campuses - the St. Mark's Campus in the Ortega neighborhood along the western banks of the St. Johns, and the Beaches Campus just steps away from the Atlantic Beach - and our Middle and Upper School divisions are both located centrally at the Munnerlyn Campus, just across the St. Johns River from downtown Jacksonville.
