Greetings! You may have found your way here and are reading this message for many different reasons. I hope you will find the information we have gathered and included here in our website helpful in your search. I invite you to contact our school office if you need additional information or answers to questions we have not covered. If you are looking for a good school for your child/children, I would like to take this opportunity to share a few thoughts with you.
Let me begin by saying, if you are here because you are considering the value of an investment (no small amount these days) in a private Catholic elementary school for your child/children, you have already encountered a daunting choice. Is is worth the cost? In the end, only you can answer that question for your family, but I would like to share some information that may help you with that decision. From data gathered over the years by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, we do know that… “A Pre-K through 12th grade Catholic school student is more likely to (or very likely to):
Advance further, faster academically. Receive individual attention. Make a difference in the world. Strive for personal excellence. Practice their faith as adults. Earn a college scholarship.”
Substantial data exists to support these claims. If these are things you want for your child, you have several very good choices in our area. While we compete on some level, all of the Hamilton/Fairfield-area Catholic elementary schools offer a great value. Each family has to make a choice regarding the school that is the best fit for them. So, why St. Joe’s?
I could give you my reasons in the usual, unavoidable “principal speak,” but I find it more valuable and credible to share with you some reasons that come from our families who have made their decisions and have chosen to become and remain part of our St. Joe’s family. I encourage you to read on and learn from them: Why St. Joe’s?
