From the moment we entered St. Joes, we were embraced by a kind, caring environment. It was a place where both the student and the parents immediately felt welcomed and were given a sense of belonging.  Pam DeAngelo, P'21, '22

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 conducted one of the largest studies on co-ed versus single sex education found that, "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."

Of the 5,300+ colleges in the United States, only 33 are single-sex, and of those, only three are for menTeaching 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 other perspectives, approaches, and responses.
