    At SJS Faith is the cornerstone of our school. All of our action and interactions are guided by our faith. When you walk down the halls you will see and feel the SJS difference. Students are the liturgy leaders at the school liturgies. There are weekly visits by the parish priests. And our thorough religion curriculum ensures a solid foundation built on Catholic values.

    "I love knowing that I am helping in making a difference for children in their faithful journey with God. I feel Catholic education is important because students are learning to serve others and set goals that challenge them to strive towards excellence. I want to provide endless opportunities for my students and by providing them a Catholic Education will allow them to know anything is possible with God! "
