if it's good enough for them its good enough for me
I am a native English speaker, but I was unable to find any authoritative answer to my question anywhere else, and I hope that you folks can help me out.
I'm writing an application essay to a college named St. John's. What is the posessive of St. John's? In other words, is it "St. Johnsí educational approach", or "St. John's educational approach", or something more exotic?

Where on that page is it used in that sense?
On the 'about' page:

Despite the unquestioned zeal of St. Johnís alumni for seminars, the next half hour offers irrefutable proof of the validity of Newtonís first law.
If one were to be very picky, one would write "St. John's's", but I doubt there is anyone who would actually do so.
