Each year, close to 100% of the graduating seniors choose to pursue further study at a college or university. St. Joseph High School considers one of its most important goals to be the students' thorough preparation, both spiritually and academically for the college years ahead.

With this in mind, the counseling department at St. Joseph encourages all students to make the most informed decisions possible by utilizing the many resources available. It is our goal to partner with students and parents in guiding and advising each student to the educational facility that best fits their individual needs and desires.

STJ employs a full time counselor and registrar and part-time academic advisor. In addition to individual and group counseling, the school will provide:
