"I really enjoy Coding and am excited to implement it in a college course - like using MIT App Inventor software and Ardvino boards."

The business and entrepreneurship curriculum focuses on developing real-world business acumen, entrepreneurial readiness and innovative skills in students. Students learn about marketing, finance, management and entrepreneurship through introductory business courses, attending the multiple business and entrepreneurial events held throughout the year, and by participating in the St. Joseph’s DECA chapter. Students also have the opportunity to complete traditional introductory and advanced coursework in economics.
A brief explanation of our academic level rating system follows. Please note, students schedules are dynamic and may include varying levels of courses.
Course scheduling at St Joes is individualized and dynamic. Your student's curriculum will be challenging and appropriate to his or her learning needs. Our academic placements are tailored to each student's strengths. Students may progress through our curriculum as his or her mastery dictates allowing students to diversify their course levels.
At St Joseph High School, it is our belief that learning is a collaboration between parents, students, teachers, counselors, and administrators. Each has a part to play in a student's success. It is our hope, that by the time a student graduates, he or she has become a lifelong learner. This maturation process takes time to develop as the right balance is struck between adult supervision and intervention and a student's ownership for learning. Younger students naturally need more adult supervision and advocacy. But as a student matures, it is expected that he or she will take responsibility for his or her learning. In the end, if a student is to succeed in college, the student must be responsible and accountable for his or her education.
