Lisa Lambert

“During the high school search process, we visited several private high schools in both Fairfield and New Haven counties and selecting St. Joseph High School was one of the best decisions our family has ever made! The community feel of engaged and friendly students, leadership and staff was evident from the first visit. We feel blessed that our son has flourished over his 4 years at SJ thanks to the opportunity to take a very challenging course load with many honors and AP courses available each year, to continue to grow in his Catholic faith, to be involved in the community, to develop new friendships, to feel supported and safe every day, to have leadership opportunities through athletic teams and to celebrate school traditions making great memories that will last a lifetime. The SJ leadership, faculty and coaches truly know every student and foster an environment of humility and care for others above self. We are so proud and thankful to be part of this exceptional SJ Family." "Lisa Lambert P'24


Preparing Your For Success - Starting Now!


Freshman Course Placement

Freshman course placement is based on a holistic application review (transcripts, exam score, recommendations, etc.).  Dynamic placement is implemented for each student. Your student will be placed in college preparatory and honors courses according to their individual qualifications. 

Additionally, St. Joes does not adhere to course "tracks" (i.e. Honors Program, College Prep Program). This process allows for differentiation of courses according to your students' specific future goals while ensuring everyone has an equal opportunity for an appropriate challenge.  SJ Cadets are also given the opportunity to change course levels each year with appropriate credentials. 

For specific questions about your student's course placement, contact our Admissions Team.


Freshman Success Program

All freshman actively participate in the Freshman Success Program designed to provide a seamless transition from middle school to St. Joseph High School. Two school Counselors and a team of dedicated SJ staff members are dedicated to answering questions and guiding both new parents and students throughout the school year. This is especially important because the Class of 2028 come from 36 towns and more than 55 middle schools! Learn more about the Freshman Success Program here!


Student Academic Center

Through a variety of workshops, services, academic tutoring, and coaching, the Student Academic Center offers students the opportunity to understand themselves and the way they learn, making the most of their strengths and learning preferences. All individual sessions, daily group sessions, and workshops reflect the diverse needs of all our students.  Learn more about the Student Academic Center here!
