St Joseph High School strives to be the premier college preparatory school in Southern Connecticut. The school provides a learning environment that embraces the Gospel values of the Roman Catholic faith and promotes a commitment to family and community.
We are student centered, and our students are in a word: confident. They celebrate each other. They do not have to put another down to make themselves feel good. Thats not true everywhere. And that doesnt happen by accident. It happens because we know what our core values are at St Joes: faith, family, and your future.
We are a faith-based school, for Catholics and non-Catholics alike. We want you here. We celebrate differences. We seek out diversity. We have Jewish students. We have Muslim students. We have an established international student program to give us a global perspective. We have exceptional economic and ethnic diversity for a private school. Here, we believe God loves everybody, equally, no matter what kind of car they drive. This means we approach our studies with a sense of purpose and responsibility. MoraI leadership is part of the curriculum. You will learn civics. You will also learn civic responsibility. Privilege and Responsibility is our motto—with just a pinch of risk taking thrown in to make you a good entrepreneur.
