Join us for Back to School Night

Mark your calendar for Saint Joe’s Back to School Night, which will be held at the school on September 13 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Attendees will receive a tour of the school, meet the teachers, learn about upcoming events, and learn about other opportunities to get involved.

Saint Joe’s invites all students, parents, and other members of the Saint Joe’s community to attend. Hope to see you there!

Celebrating our Faith: Weekly Mass Schedule Implemented for 2018-19

“Go from this community and begin to change this world.” Father Jonathan Dickson offered this inspirational advice at our first All-School Mass, reminding us that what students learn at Saint Joe’s is bigger than report cards or even college applications. As Catholics, we are called to use our knowledge and talents for the benefit of others and to improve our communities and our world.

Beginning this school year, students will celebrate Mass weekly on Thursdays.

“As a Catholic school, our faith is our unique and defining characteristic,” said Head of School Jennifer Mallett. “Celebrating Mass not only celebrates our uniqueness as a Catholic school, it also gives students and faculty an opportunity to make personal reflections and deepen their own faith. I’m excited to make this change.”

Parents and families are welcome to join us for All-School Mass every Thursday at 9a.m. in the Student Life Center.

Family Feature: The Mangenes

Four Pillars Serve as Lifelong Foundation: The Mangene Family Feels Blessed to be Part of the Saint Joe’s Community

When exploring high school options, Jack and Maggie Mangene saw a unique opportunity at Saint Joe’s to get a personalized education and grow their faith. Fortunately, both have received financial aid, which helped make their education at Saint Joe’s possible.

Jack and Maggie’s parents, Scott and Dani, are grateful for the opportunities that Saint Joe’s affords, such as smaller class sizes, service opportunities, and faith development. The added value makes every dollar they’re spending on Saint Joe’s worth it.

“People are willing to pay for things that are important to them,” Dani says. “My children value the resources that our family devotes to their education. They are hard-working and appreciate all that Saint Joe’s can offer them.”

The education Jack and Maggie are receiving is a natural extension of their faith-based upbringing and has helped them build a strong foundation for life after high school.

“Our family believes that faith is the cornerstone of a healthy life,” Dani says, noting that Saint Joseph’s allows any child to attend, regardless of their faith, while still promoting a healthy Catholic faith.

The four pillars (faith, scholarship, leadership, and service) have also been critical to Jack and Maggie’s development.

“I believe that the four pillars, which are introduced to students on day one, will help my children to succeed in life,” Dani says. “The pillars have taught my children to learn from failure and treat it as an opportunity for growth.”

Dani isn’t shy when it comes to sharing her appreciation of Saint Joe’s and is quick to recommend it to other families.

She encourages parents to take a tour, ask lots of questions, and, most importantly, to let their child(ren) chose which school is best for them.

“Our family is so pleased with Saint Joe’s,” she says. “I can’t say enough about how this school has blessed us.”
