SJCS supports every child to become and accomplish their best. Between the many opportunities to be challenged in the classroom, to their "no cut" athletic program (that models inclusion in every way) to the weekly optional Mass and Reconciliation, daily Religion classes, and Days of Reflection (where the students spend a day in spiritual retreat, lead by the High School Ministry Team), SJCS feeds the mind, body, and spirit in all that they do. So grateful for the teachers and admin! Worth every dollar as an investment in my kid!

St. Joseph School is a reliable family committed to loving and supporting our children unconditionally - mind, body, and spirit - in their journey through academics, sports, and faith. We became part of the St. Joseph family when my three children started attending St. Joseph School in 2011. It has been a real joy to watch them grow and thrive in this safe, loving environment. The faculty and staff have an open-door two-way communication that allows me to be involved with my children's development academically, physically, artistically, and spiritually. Strong, dependable bonds are formed among students, parents, faculty, staff, and administration, but we also love to welcome new members to our SJS family.

Our students are academically advanced, but one may expect that in a private school. What I am impressed by is the moral character that I see demonstrated by the students, parents, teachers, administrators, and pastors. So much support, grace, encouragement, and compassion are given to all parties and by all parties that it truly feels like a family; a safe place. I've worked enough places by now to understand that this is not common, but is special to this school.

St. Joseph's is a great environment for forming the whole person: Spirit, Mind & Body. This school seeks to provide our children with a solid foundation upon which they will build their character and future contributions back to society. It is a loving environment that combines a good grounding in Catholicism while also seeking to live those values every day. A great school needs excellent leadership that constantly pushes the organization to achieve better and better versions of itself. The current leadership of St. Joseph's is a HUGE plus on that score. The team is dynamic, aspirational, and committed to excellence. They are building on the strengths of a history that dates back to its founding in 1894 while also not being afraid to make changes and strive to be even better. You can just tell great, positive energy when you see it and we've got some great talent leading the way. St. Joseph's is going places!

Our son has been attending St. Joseph since 6th grade. He will be graduating this year. How can I best describe St. Joseph? I'd say, family. Our family has been treated by the faculty, staff, and other families, as family, even though we are not Catholic, from day one. Any time I've had issues that need to be handled by staff, it's handled personably and quickly, and politely. I don't feel like a number, as I sometimes felt at the larger public school my older son attended. That may be in part because it is much smaller and more intimate, but I think it is more than that. The teachers and staff are there because they care. Our child's classmates are all very respectful, and their parents are wonderful people. We feel welcome wherever we go. The quality of education, we feel, has been excellent for the money, as have the opportunities to play sports and participate in other extracurricular activities. I highly recommend St. Joseph.
