Respect for Learning

At St. Joseph Central High School, students benefit each and every day from the values and traditions of a faith-based education. Our students embrace respect, not only for themselves but for each other. Students absorb the life-long learning that takes place here, knowing that it will serve them today and throughout their lives.

Advocating for All

At St. Joseph Central High School, faculty, staff and parents are all committed to each student’s success. We nurture, embrace and develop in each of our students a sense of self that guides them to make the right choices. We believe we are a part of their future, and they are a part of our history. Together we are St. Joseph Central High School.

A Community that Cares

We have a vested interest in the success of our community and understand the value of civic responsibility. We believe we are all stewards of this community and our world. We welcome working together with parents, businesses and other organizations so that together we can teach our children…and grow our community.

Message from the Principal


As this school year quickly comes to a close, I want to thank the St. Joe community for all the help and support I received in my first year. The students have been honest and forthcoming in their conversations with me; they have stepped up when asked, and even when not asked. They embody our mission of service to others. Parents have been very supportive both with school issues and through the activities of the Crusader Club. The St. Joe alumni continue to sustain our school by supporting our fund raisers and other activities. The staff continuously impresses me with their enthusiastic encouragement and professional expertise. Their willingness to put in the extra time and effort for the students and the school is impressive.

There are several staff changes for the upcoming year; some of our teachers are pursuing higher educational degrees, some are moving, and St. Joe’s icon, Lillian Quinn, is retiring. All will be missed. I look forward to this summer as we put new plans in place, and wish you all a healthy, restful break!

God Bless You,

Amy Gelinas, Principal
