Saint Joseph’s is the ideal place for students to embrace and explore their faith journeys.  We create an environment where they can do both without fear of judgment.  We are a place where students seek and often find their purpose.

Our graduates are ready to succeed
We actively prepare our students for the nation's finest colleges and universities through a rigorous and relevant academic program and comprehensive career counseling efforts. We use student-centered teaching strategies that encourage exploration, critical and creative thinking, and the development of advanced writing and oral presentation skills—all of which are vital for success at Saint Joseph's and beyond.

Ideal school experience
Our school is designed to maximize a student’s experience.  Classes and activities promote learning to the fullest by providing an ideal mix of collaboration and independent work addressing multiple learning styles.  Our courses and activities like the House System and WolfPack Ambassadors support and require our students to step into leadership roles.  As a result, students gain the confidence and competence needed for success at Saint Joseph’s and, importantly, the next phase of their lives.
