Why St Joes?

At St Joseph High School, 820 students are supported and challenged in our Catholic, coeducational, college preparatory community. Led by talented faculty and staff, students approach opportunities to explore their interests, talents, and future paths with confidence. The fear of failure is purposefully removed from these important four years of academic discovery.
The celebrated success of our family of Cadets is not an accident. Innovation in conjunction with sustainability and tradition inform everything from curriculum to facilities and even student-run clubs. The unique value of a St Joseph High School education combines the best of academic, altruistic, athletic, and social development in a supportive environment. We are more than just a school, but an extraordinary community.

Quick Tip from the Admissions Office:
Save These Dates!
The fall season is when the Admissions process heats up. The online application is now available, so the best piece of advice is to plan ahead. Everything from admissions deadlines, weekend Open Houses, information sessions, shadow dates, financial aid application, recommendation forms, and entrance exams will take place in this two month period. Students will often have classroom visits from High School representatives – use that time wisely, make yourself known, and ask how applicants are evaluated.
Don't forget to save these dates:
  • October 1, 2018 - Financial Aid Application is Available Online under Financial Aid. Shadow Visits Begin.
  • October 14, 2018 - Fall Open House
  • October 19-20, 2018 - Entrance Exam Prep Course
  • October 27 & November 10, 2018 – Entrance Exams (One-time test)
