The SJR curriculum consists of four academic programs: College Preparatory, Accelerated, Honors, and Advanced Placement. Highly motivated students can earn college credits through an ongoing partnership with Seton Hall University.
At SJR, it is our goal to not only carry on our core principle of ‘Vir Fidelis’ in producing the ‘faithful man’, but also develop the individual strengths of each boy while encouraging him to truly think and challenge himself outside of his comfort zone. This creates a group of diverse individuals who have harnessed their own talents, interests and skills and come together to form a well rounded community.
From the classroom, to the athletic fields, to the theater, SJR students are exposed to a wide range of experiences that will help them develop leadership skills for life. The Green Knights athletic program is rich with history, with 47 state titles and counting. The SJR Performing Arts program is nationally recognized and critically acclaimed as one of the top theater programs in New Jersey.
At SJR, we believe that our faith is action-oriented, in fact, it is a contact sport. In order to live your faith, you have to go out in the world and serve others. It is the cornerstone of our mission. The community service program is designed to provide students with opportunities to impact the needs of their communities – especially children, the elderly, the disadvantaged, the poor, and the handicapped. Through their volunteer efforts, students will mature spiritually as they learn that service is at the heart of the Gospel. By serving others, we emulate Christ, whose own ministry was one of service to others.
Welcome to Saint Joseph Regional High School.
As a member of the class of 1994, many of my favorite memories have come from my time at SJR. Playing in the Bergen County Jamboree semifinals, bonding with my classmates, many of whom have become lifelong friends, performing in the school musicals, pitching in the state baseball tournament. All moments and memories that have helped shape so many aspects of my personal and professional life. The St. Joe’s brotherhood created a lifelong bond within the green knight community.
Since 1962, SJR has been a leader in educating young men who are not only prepared to find success in college and beyond, but also carry on the Catholic fundamentals to think, lead and serve.
SJR is a unique and special place filled with dozens of stories. It is my hope to tell those stories to you, prospective students and families, and help guide you through the high school selection process. Choosing the right high school fit for you son is a critical decision and one that I do not take lightly both as an Admissions Director and as a parent of two boys.
At SJR it is our goal to not only carry on our core principle of “Vir Fidelis” in producing the “Faithful Man” but also develop the individual strengths of each boy while encouraging them to challenge themselves outside of their comfort zone. This creates a community of diverse individuals who have harnessed their own talents, interests and skills and come together to form a well rounded community.
This is SJR.
I look forward to meeting you on campus very soon.
