School Reviews

We love that St. Joe's is a place that is the best fit for all of our children. However, they could stand to be MUCH less nepotistic (if that's even a word). The admissions director could, also, stand to be MUCH more pro-athletics or just retire altogether...she's been there too long. We've been there for more than 9 years and all of our graduates have excelled and been ready for their college education. St. Joe's has made strides in improving other administrative issues that have been road blocks in the past so, if you are considering St. Joseph's Catholic School for your child, we very highly recommend it. The peer environment is not any different from any other private school but, St. Joseph's is TRULY a college prep school where Christ Church Episcopal School is NOT.
