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.

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.

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.
