St. Joseph High School is a Catholic, Christian educational community formed in the Lasallian tradition whose MISSION is to provide a Christian education for young women and men of diverse economic and cultural backgrounds. We inspire these young women and men to discover their God-given talents, empower them to be lifelong learners and challenge them to achieve their potential as compassionate women and men of faith.
Five SJHS seniors are taking American History Since 1865, a course in which students fulfill their senior year social studies requirement at St. Joseph HS while also earning credit at Benedictine University. This three-hour credit is also transferable to another university of their choosing. The Chargers attend some classes at Benedictine University while their professor, Dr. Vincent Gaddis, travels to Westchester to provide instruction as well. The class also makes use of WebEx technology to collaborate.
For three days in September, photographers, wardrobe personnel, lighting technicians and managers guided 159 student-athletes and fine-arts performers through candid pictures and poses. Examples of the photographs were soon posted and students gathered to marvel at how professional they looked as they held hope that they might soon appear in a professional catalog.
The administration, faculty and staff of St. Joseph High School wish all of our students, parents/guardians, alumni & benefactors a Merry Christmas and a Joyour New Year!
