Great school, deceiving how big it is. You must make an appointment and go for a tour. They have a fantastic sports program which includes all sports, but our favorites is hockey and even rowing! Take the time and go see for yourself!

Amazing college prep school experience with outstanding academics, top-ranked athletics, engaging extracurricular activities and academic teams, and a sprawling 76-acre campus are what make Saint Joe`s so amazing. Pair that with the exceptional foundation you receive rooted in Christian values and this school is by far in a league of its own. Its population is in the 500s and remains the best school for boys in New Jersey.
