St. Joseph High School is a Catholic, Christian educational community formed in the Lasallian tradition whose mission is to provide a Christian education for young women and men of diverse economic and cultural backgrounds.
We inspire these young women and men to discover their God-given talents, empower them to be lifelong learners and challenge them to achieve their potential as compassionate women and men of faith.
St. Joseph High School believes in developing the God-given talents of its members.
We recognize the dignity of the person and seek to develop a climate which encourages achievement.
Created in God's image, we strive to become aware of our individual worth and to be spiritually vigorous, strong in faith, morally responsible and committed to Christian values.
St. Joseph High School, guided by the spirit and heritage of St. John Baptist de La Salle and the Brothers of the Christian Schools, provides a human and Christian education for young men and women through a curriculum which is spiritually and intellectually challenging.
We provide an opportunity for students of diverse economic, intellectual and cultural backgrounds to develop into informed, self-motivated individuals and responsible Christian members of society.
We seek to develop a sense of democracy, and a knowledge of and a respect for the democratic system of government.
As such, we seek to be responsible United States citizens, socially aware and committed to the welfare of all persons and to the promotion of peace and justice.

My oldest will be gradulating from St. Joes this coming spring, and has had so many college acceptance letters to chose from. The staff is dedicated, inovative, and caring. The guidance department goes above and beyond. The sports and the extra cirricular activities keep everyone involved and active. I would highly recommend!

We have been very happy with our experience at St. Joe''s. The teachers and guidance staff do whatever they can to help. Not our top priority but the athletic teams are competitive and the coaches give the kids a fair chance. Our child has been offeered many scholarships at highly ranked universities. Thank you St. Joe''s !
