"The moment I walked into St. Joe's for my student visit day, I knew this was my future high school. Students and teachers were interacting with one another and not one person was left out. The respect and maturity between staff and students was truly amazing, and I knew that I would be welcomed here."Isabella '24

Ready to start your high school search? Here are a few suggested steps to help plan your path to St. Joes!



Step 1: Begin with a Personal Inventory

Our best advice to rising 8th grade students is to write down what matters to you as a student and what high school experience you want to have. Define your high school goals – what courses, clubs, teams do you want to join? What experiences do you want to have? What community will support your achievement of these goals? Most importantly, what questions do you have for current high school students?
