Saint Joseph High School is operated by the Brothers of the Sacred Heart, who have been active in American education since their arrival from Lyons, France in 1847. At Saint Joe’s students and parents will find an exceptional college preparatory program rooted in Christian values, a great athletic program and an extensive list of extracurricular activities. The school admits boys of any race, color, national or ethnic origin or creed and is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and by the National Association of Independent Schools. Saint Joe’s is located on 77 acres in Metuchen and Edison, NJ.
Character Development is in the Curriculum
The Formation Program at Saint Joe’s is designed to address non-traditional educational components that are vital to students’ development, but are not covered in the normal curriculum.
A few areas of particular interest include leadership and character development and diversity. On Wednesdays throughout the school year, an hour of time is dedicated to Formation. The Program is broken down by grade level, with each grade attending a seminar that is relevant to them in their development. For example, freshman attend a seminar on preparing for a midterm/final, while seniors attend one on writing a college essay.
Saint Joe’s believes that its Formation Program helps students to develop into well-rounded individuals and extends their learning beyond the typical core classes of the school day.
Faculty with Talent and Experience
The school’s faculty and staff are comprised of highly educated and talented individuals who truly care about the success and well-being of the Saint Joseph students.
More than 70% of Saint Joe’s educators have at least one master’s degree or higher and 10% have a doctorate degree including two medical doctors and two lawyers.
Five of Saint Joe’s Partners in Mission have been accepted as Advanced Placement (AP) Readers to grade the national AP exams each year. Additionally, one serves as a member of the AP Leadership as a Table Leader.
On average, Saint Joseph teachers have 21 years of experience in their field of expertise, while 31% have over 30 years of teaching experience.
All of Saint Joe’s teachers are trained in STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) so that they are able to provide enriching and cross-sectional lessons to their students.
