Here's Why Our Students Love STJ!
Mia Mabray - Class of 2024
My experience at STJ has made me feel extremely prepared for life after high school. I am gaining a fabulous education while also learning life skills of confidence, independence, collaboration, and more. We learn in and out of the classroom – through group projects and presentations, retreats, sports, clubs, and independent interaction with faculty and staff members. Challenges in the classroom have improved my communication skills, and have proven that hard work will be rewarded.
Katie Jane Kopecky - Class of 2024
STJ has made me a stronger person, both on the playing field and in the classroom. I have become the student I have always wanted to be, one that is driven academically, spiritually, physically, and mentally. I love the close knit community that STJ provides – from the excellent teachers to the supportive staff. Everyone on campus truly wants to help you on your personal journey to success.
Benton Jecker - Class of 2024
The teachers at STJ are inspired and driven to help individual students in every way they can. They help us to be prepared for college. Many teachers stay after school to allow students to have one-on-one time if they have trouble understanding a lesson. I personally have been helped numerous times in tutorials, allowing me to further understand lessons or topics. The many AP classes that STJ offers have fully prepared me for the college workload, making me feel ready to take the next step into my academic career.
Presley Manning - Class of 2024
The teachers expect a lot out of us at STJ. My teachers have helped me and worked with me to understand the lessons and curriculum. I appreciate that they are so attentive and willing to help me. I have learned to be disciplined in my studying and work ethic. I’m confident that when I go to college I will succeed. I have also loved being involved in the sports programs at STJ. It has built my team working skills, as well as helped me to strive forward in difficult situations, like trying to balance school work and practice. It has also given me the opportunity to get to know more of my peers and build really great friendships.
Aiden Aragon - Class of 2025
STJ has not only helped me academically, it has also taught me many life lessons to prepare me for life going forward. Being able to participate in multiple sports has been a great part of my STJ experience. It has allowed me to enjoy school and everything that it has to offer. The coaches and counselors help you prepare for athletics at the next level.
Angelina Garza - Class of 2025
STJ makes leaders. As an STJ student, we are able to participate in various activities to foster friendships and develop leadership skills. Having this opportunity has allowed me to discover passions in new things and create unforgettable memories. I am very grateful for all the support and opportunities STJ has provided me throughout the years.
Luis Garay - Class of 2025
St. Joseph High School has helped me in learning more about my Catholic faith. In Theology class, we go into depth about the significance of our faith. Being a student at STJ has pushed me to further my knowledge. This has helped me reach my full potential in everything I do. Academically, I feel prepared for life after high school. Our counselors, teachers, coaches and staff all help us get prepared for life.
A Word From Our STJ Parents.
Mandy and Kurt Mueller
We couldn’t be more thankful for St. Joseph High School when we moved to Victoria a little over a year ago. Moving two teenagers across the country was no easy feat; but the welcoming culture of STJ made the transition so smooth for our daughter! She immediately found her tribe and has thrived both socially and academically. The high caliber education she is receiving is setting her up for future collegiate success. Our son is a freshman this year and has equally enjoyed attending STJ. As he transitions into high school level studies, we are thankful for the extra support and tutoring available that we did not see in public schools he previously attended. To see them both so happy and motivated to pursue their studies has made us so incredibly happy we chose STJ!
Celina and Vic Nunez
When our son told us he wanted to tour St. Joseph for high school we were thrilled. Not many students coming from public school choose this route. From the first day we stepped on campus, we felt like part of the family. Yes, family. The faculty are so welcoming. With the student to teacher ratio, we knew our son would be getting the instruction needed to reach his potential and achieve his goals. Tutoring is offered daily and the teachers get to know each student, wanting and expecting the best for them. Attending Theology class, Catholic mass and retreats has increased his knowledge of our religion and brought him closer to God. The many clubs, service opportunities and sports has been wonderful throughout his high school years. The entire school gets involved, supports one another and rallies behind their fellow classmates.
Paige and Ben Streiff
St. Joseph High School has been an amazing partner in the development and education of our two children. The teachers, leadership, and staff of St. Joseph are highly engaged and dedicated to providing a first-class scholastic experience in a safe and spiritual environment. The values and standards that STJ expects are important to our family, and we are proud to see students demonstrate them in the classroom, on the field, and within the community everyday. We particularly like that the class sizes are small, the education is personal, and the additional time offered after the normal school hours is a tremendous benefit. The teachers really know their students and work diligently towards preparing them for college and beyond. The education, athletics, student life, and staff at St. Joseph has more than exceeded our expectations, and we are truly blessed to be part of the STJ family!
Audrey and Chad Donner
We love STJ! As a new family here, we are just starting our Flyer journey. Our family moves a lot for work, and has experienced several other Christian and public schools in Texas. The staff at STJ has been the most wonderful. We’ve never experienced such enthusiasm, care and attitudes of humble service. When communicating with the staff, it feels like they consider it an honor and a privilege to be on this journey with your family. We feel confident that the rigorous curriculum and the emphasis placed on helping students be able to speak for themselves, will help empower our son to connect and take ownership of his education at STJ and beyond. So far, it seems like an environment well-suited to help young people discover their full potential as scholars, athletes and members of the body of Christ. Our family has been warmly welcomed and we look forward to enjoying the journey!
Denise and Jared Tomanek
St. Joseph High School has been such a gift for our family. Our students' route to this Catholic high school came from completing K-8 in the public school system. From the moment we toured STJ to this day, we knew this was the best decision for our children. As far as a school, St. Joseph offers many positives: academics, athletics and fine arts. Our two public school kids, at a very transitional academic age, knew only a few future classmates, however, they were welcomed, befriended and included. The faculty and staff are happy to serve and this can be witnessed in the joy they have for their students and their long tenure as faculty at STJ. Most importantly for us, St. Joseph High School puts a premium on character development in the curriculum, in the gymnasium, on school trips and in the cafeteria. As parents, we are very pleased with St. Joseph High School and our kids are happy being a part of the Flyer family.
