I am a new parent to St. Josephs. My Perkier and Kindergartener started this August 2022. I was late to the private school registration and did not realize how competitive it has become. We looked at several schools all of which had waitlists. I worked with admissions and still wanted to visit each school. Saint Jose was the 2nd school I toured. I immediately walked in and it felt like home. It was one of those moments when you know you know. Ms. Angie in admissions made me feel like I was there a dozen times and she was a friend from years ago. I felt like my kids would have 40 other parents (teachers) with them every day. We stayed on the wait list for several months and then got the notice that the openings were available. I didn't hesitate to accept! The support and family that come from this school have been so welcoming. I know I made the right choice for my children and I look forward to the growth they will have here. In only a few short months I see how much they have flourished both in education, and religion. There are always events and gatherings if you choose to attend.

I absolutely love this school! My dad graduated from here many moons ago and I am proud to say our daughter (his grandkids) will be attending here from PreK to 8th grade! I have so many nice things I can say about the school from the outstanding principal to the greatest admissions to the nicest and caring teachers! This school is awesome and I am a proud parent of a Wolfpack kid!

Being a relatively new family to St. Joe's, I am so pleased with how we were welcomed into the school! My kids enjoy being here, like their teachers very much, and enjoy playing sports for their school. The administration and staff has the students' best interests at heart. I would make the same decision to send my kids here 1,000 times over again!
