My 3-year-old started attending Saint Joseph this year. And she loves it! Her teacher cares deeply for her well-being and all the staff make her feel comfortable and safe. There is no more a parent can ask for with their child.

I am a former student and current teacher at St Joseph Catholic High School. I now send both of my daughters to the elementary and middle schools, and I'm very excited to see them here at the high school someday. I really could not ask for a better educational setting for the two people about whom I care the most. Both of my daughters have attended St. Joseph Catholic School since kindergarten. Their teachers are kind and compassionate and provide a great deal of individual attention to their students. Class sizes are small. Students learn a ton. They have a lot of fun and sincerely enjoy attending school. This year in particular has been immensely important. After so much time spent home in the spring and summer of 2020, they cannot wait for breaks to end so they can be back in the classroom with their teachers and peers. It's been a gift to be a part of the SJCES community this year. We are truly grateful for everything they do.

My Son graduated from St. Joseph Catholic High School in 2017 after attending the elementary school since Kindergarten. I have a Son currently attending St. Joseph Catholic Elementary school now and has been there since Kindergarten. He will be starting up at the High School next year. I can honestly say, my boys are the people they are today because of the amazing education they received and are continuing to receive from the St. Joseph schools. The administration, faculty, and staff care so much about the students and will do anything to make sure they receive a quality education. The thing that has impressed me the most this past year is that they have been able to stay open since the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. Which many schools in the area have not been able to do. They have done everything in their power to keep the students safe and IN school! If you are considering a private school for your child, you should consider this outstanding school.

My name is Alicia Behnken. I have been teaching at St. Joseph Catholic HS for 17 years. I teach Spanish. I had the opportunity to have my 3 kids attend St. Joseph. All graduated and I can't say enough about the great preparation that they received here at St. Joseph. All of them recognized that a rigorous curriculum is the best way to prepare them for the rigor of College. Each of them was well prepared, they learned various skills in the classroom that helped them navigate college life. They enjoyed the one-to-one time that they had from their teachers; they appreciated the care that they received and the compassion that teachers showed for them. As a teacher, I enjoyed taking time from my class to have discussions about life and to hopefully inspire each student to be a better person. If you are looking for a school that will not only prepare your student for college but also a place of nurturing the whole being, ST JOSEPH IS YOUR CHOICE. I love the diversity of my classes, and I love having the opportunity to work with each when they are struggling. We make time for each of them and we know each of our students by their name. In my class, it is not a one strategy fits all, but instead; we make modifications for each child and their learning experience. We want each student to not just understand concepts, but to experience enduring understanding with all that they learn in the classroom.

My daughter started at the elementary school in the 3 year pre-K program and has now moved on to the high school, so we have been part of the school community through every grade offered. I can't say enough good things about the school! We loved the small class sizes, high level of education and caring community. The teachers genuinely care about the students and families. The curriculum is advanced and our child has blossomed and excelled. It has been an outstanding experience for our family. I would highly recommend this school.

We couldn`t be happier with St. Joseph's elementary school. The class sizes are small and the teachers really get to know their students. It is a very warm and caring environment. Our son loves school and is excelling academically and socially. We highly recommend St. Joe's.
