Visit SJCS

The best way to learn more about St. Joseph Christian School is to experience it firsthand.  We invite you to let us show you around our school, hear from students, teachers, and parents as they share what SJCS means to them.  Join us for a personal tour, open house, or student shadow day where you and your student can experience our SJCS family.  Take advantage of these events to ask questions and learn more. It will be a privilege for us to get to know and serve your family!

6:30pm | Teacher, parent, and student panel.  Teachers will give highlights on curriculum and benefits of teaching to a smaller class size.  Parents will share about the sacrifice and how it has been worth it. Students will share their experience here and the opportunities they’ve had at SJCS.
