St.John's took root way back in 1969. At that time, a great need was felt by the people of Gannavaram for an English Medium School that could provide sound education to children. Late Dr.C.L.Rayudu, an eminent personality of Gannavaram took the initiative and approached the then pro Nuncio (Vatican Ambassador to India) when on a visit to Vijayawada to persuade him to request a catholic Religious group to start an English Medium School at Gannavaram.
His efforts bore fruits when the Bishop of Vijayawada Diocese at the request of Pro Nuncio invited the Montfort Brothers of St. Gabriel to set up an educational institution at Gannavaram. A team of Brothers, Bro. Felix, Bro. Julian and the late Bros. Vincent and Stansilaus arrived to pave the way.
Two acres of land for starting the school was provided by late Mrs.Venkataratnamma. Another twenty acres of land around was bought by the Brothers. The foundation stone was laid by the then Chief Minister, K.Brahmananda Reddy on 31st August 1969.
