A Christ-Centered Education
Academic rigor is central to what we do at SJS. We want every student to reach their full potential. To achieve this we employee high quality teachers who average 15 years in the classroom. We believe in differentiating our instruction so all student needs are met. We integrate technology when possible. And we believe in the value of small and cooperative grouping. This has led to our students achieving high marks on standardized tests and yearly high school scholarship winners.

Technology at SJS
Technology is an integral part of the educational experience at SJS. Teachers work to incorporate technology in meaningful ways that enhance the curriculum. We have two dedicated computer labs and multiple mobile labs, consisting of iPads and Chromebooks, that help our students succeed and prepare them for the future.
At SJS there are a variety of clubs and teams for students to become involved in. These extracurriulars provide meaningful experiences outside the regular classroom that allow students to pursue and explore different interests.
