There's a reason we say St. Joes Cadets are on a Mission for More.
It’s because here, students are always striving forward. They’re eager to discover new talents and expand existing passions. They’re determined to reach the goals they’ve set for themselves. And they’re ready to serve something greater — their community, their faith, and the larger world.
SJ Cadets are on this mission because, at St. Joseph High School, we give every student exceptional opportunities to do more with their high school years.
- Our dynamic, personalized scheduling ensures every St. Joes student receives a rigorous, multidimensional education tailored to their needs and abilities.
- Advanced courses and electives elevate the St. Joes learning experience, encouraging students to develop their talents, intellect, and personal identity.
- College and school counseling provide individualized guidance and support beginning freshman year, preparing students to make informed decisions about higher education and career opportunities.
- Our exceptional faculty combine academic credentials and practical experience to both support and challenge students, inspiring collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking.
- Our school-family partnership philosophy allows us to reinforce shared values and provide students with an education based on a foundation of love, kindness, and caring.
No matter where a student is on their high school journey, St. Joes helps them seek out their talents, strive for greatness, serve the common good, and thrive with confidence. I hope you’ll soon join us on this mission for more.

The goal of every course at St. Joes is to challenge our students - challenge them to grow academically; to develop spiritually; to immerse themselves socially. Throughout their years at St. Joes, our students become problem solvers, creative thinkers, language aficionados, art lovers, and life-long learners.
Home to our Student Academic Center, the O'Keefe Media Center is a pivotal part of our school culture and community - a place where our students can access the resources and skills instruction needed to grow and develop as a life-long learner.
To say that we’ve been happy with our decision to send our son to St. Joe’s would be an understatement. We have put our full trust in the SJ institution and it has benefited our family as a whole quite significantly. Chris’ experience could not likely have been duplicated elsewhere. Kathy Kiley P'21
The Value of a Co-Ed Education
St. Joseph High School believes in the many social and academic benefits of a mixed-gender education. A co-ed environment promotes healthy student relationships, fosters effective learning, and reflects 21st century realities. As we look to the world we're preparing our students to enter, their success will be dependent on how they work, interact, and collaborate with diverse groups of people.
According to Janet Hyde, a professor of psychology at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, which did one of the largest studies on co-ed versus single sex education, "there is a mountain of research in social psychology showing that segregation by race or gender feeds stereotypes, and that’s not what we want. The adult world is an integrated world, in the workplace and in the family, and the best thing we can do is provide that environment for children in school as we prepare them for adulthood.”
Of the 5,300+ colleges in the United States, only 33 are single-sex, and of those, only three are for men. Teaching our young men and women how to learn and work together allows our students to see beyond stereotypes and develop respect for views that are different from their own. At St. Joseph High School, students benefit from a safe environment in which they are able to learn from people who are different from themselves. As they mature, they appreciate more other perspectives, approaches, and responses.
