Welcome to Saint Joseph Regional High School! 2018-19 marks our fifty-seventh year of “making history and building futures”.
In 1962, the Xaverian Brothers opened St. Joe’s with the philosophy that by nurturing a community that worked together toward a common goal, with God’s grace, the ‘small’ accomplishments of every passing day would lead our school to greatness.
Fifty-six years later, the accuracy of their vision is clearly evident. It is manifested in a rigorous and varied academic program that includes a growing STEAM program, on-line classes and internship opportunities. What’s more, the Xaverian commitment to developing well-rounded men of faith is clearly evidenced in a comprehensive extra-curricular program that includes athletics, activities and the arts, as well as a campus ministry program committed to growing faith, developing leaders and promoting student service.
The Marist Brothers call on each of us “to make Jesus known and loved”, while the Xaverian motto reminds us that “in harmony, small things grow”. We begin a new school year committed to the ministries of both religious orders, and to the development of the Vir Fidelis, the faithful man, who will “think critically, act responsibly, lead ethically, serve generously and emulate humbly the example of our patron, St. Joseph.”
As you explore the pages of our website, I hope that you will see very clearly how all of these goals come together in the daily life of our school, and be encouraged to find out even more about what makes Saint Joseph Regional High School such a special place.
God bless you.
