Department Overview

At St. Joe’s, we aim to build a solid foundation of mathematical principles with a focus on application and analysis to teach true problem solving and critical thinking skills. Students enter our college-prep mathematics program at different levels, so we offer a wide variety of courses to challenge and inspire each student.

During the four years of study, all students will have the opportunity to earn college credit in mathematics either through Advanced Placement courses or through our Pre-Calculus college partnership program.
St. Joe's also participates in the University at Buffalo Gifted Math Program.
