Excellent Academic Programming
The challenging academic programming at Saint Joseph School helps students gain knowledge and increase confidence in their abilities. Our teachers are well trained at helping each and every child reach his or her potential—and our academic results speak for themselves. SJS’ national test scores rank in the top 10% of the country, our students consistently score among the top high school entrance test-takers (with an impressive number being awarded high school scholarships each year) and several former Cavs have earned National Merit recognition in high school. Not only that, Saint Joseph School is proud of the multiple top awards for its academic team and consistent high placement at archdiocesan academic competitions.
Cavaliers Aspire Higher
“Aspire Higher” is our motto, our rallying cry—a true summary of what it means to be a Cav. That’s why everything at St. Joseph is focused on encouraging and equipping our students to strive for excellence in all that they do. Cavs aspire higher in the classroom, on the court, in the community—everywhere. This culture instills a foundation in our students that benefits them long after they leave our halls. In fact, many SJS graduates report that they felt very prepared for high school due to their strong foundation from Saint Joseph School. They also say they felt confident to pursue opportunities in school and beyond because of the experiences they had at Saint Joe’s.
