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.
The methods are more sophisticated than those used by Sherlock Holmes, but the skills are the same: observation, analysis, and deduction. In Crime Scene Investigation, a year-long elective course at St. Joseph High School, students begin in the English classroom where they read and discuss crime fiction and non-fiction. They analyze crime from various perspectives and apply critical thinking to the social and moral dilemmas of all the people affected by crime.
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.
A season of penance, reflection, and fasting which prepares us for Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday, through which we attain redemption.
