St Joseph High School - A Catholic College Preparatory School
St Joseph Feast Day: Together for Others
On Tuesday, March 19, the entire school celebrated The Feast of St Joseph - a day-long celebration that includes Mass, multiple service projects, and various fun and engaging activities for our students. 

The day began with a school-wide Mass celebrated by Bishop Caggiano, and joined by more than 200 Grandparents of our current students.
Cadets then took part in different activities throughout the day, including our annual Meal Pack with Catholic Relief Services. Our students helped to pack more than 24,000 meals (enough to feed 144,000 people!). In addition, students made 250 Easter Baskets as well as 400 paper lilies!

Kenny Schneider Crowned Mr Student Body 2019!
What a show! St Joe's 11th Annual Mr Student Body was truly a sight to behold!
It was a packed house as our senior boys showcased their dancing skills, individual talents, and trivia expertise as they competed for the title of "Mr Student Body 2019." Mr Student Body strengthens friendships while raising awareness and funding for The Center of Family Justice.

Congratulations to our 2019 Mr Student Body, Kenny Schneider! And congrats to Aiden Marin, as well, who was crowned the fan favorite!
