Welcome Back to Your Alma Mater!

The Alumni Community at St Joseph High School is more than 10,000 strong! SJ Cadets are proud of where they went to high school, and are especially proud to stay connected, attend events, and support the school is whichever way they are able. We love our Alumni!

Want to Stay Connected? Here are some ways!
