Over my 45 years at St. Joe's, I've developed a deep appreciation for our private school community and its 156-year tradition of excellence in Lasallian Catholic, college-preparatory education.
Though the faces have changed throughout the years, our mission has not - rather, it has become even stronger as we welcome all qualified students to our school. Since being founded by six Christian Brothers in 1861, St. Joe's has provided a broad and balanced, human and Christian education, designed to nurture each student's unique talents and foster a dedication to leadership and service.
At St. Joe's, we call this "educating the whole student." Our educators look beyond the classroom and teach their students not only how to achieve their academic goals, but how to become gentlemen of faith, character and integrity. An education at St. Joe's instills lifelong values, lasting friendships, and continued commitment to the community.
Today, more than ever, we have been able to provide the opportunities to ensure success for all of our students. This includes a new state-of-the-art Cullen Center for Excellence in Science, a new All-Weather Athletic Field complex and Field House, and the Cullen Center for the Arts. We have also recently been able to provide a new residence for our Christian Brothers who live on campus, assuring their presence with us for many, many more years to come.
Put simply, it's our mission to give our students the most opportunities to become the best versions of themselves. I invite you to visit our community of excellence and experience St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute for yourself!
