School Reviews

I attended St. Joe's from 68-77 and received a top quality education where the priests and nuns ran the school. St. Joe's education was structured, balanced, and although may require additional time and effort on part of the family, in the long run, you will never regret ever going there once you graduated. As you became a part of it, it became a part of you.
