St. Joseph High School (SJHS), located in Downtown Brooklyn, is a Catholic all-girls high school that empowers young women to find their voices and become the leaders of tomorrow. Young women attending SJHS are critical thinkers, creative problem solvers, clear communicators and spirited collaborators.

State-of-the-art technology engages students across the curriculum. With a STEAM Program linked to major academic and research universities throughout the region including Baruch College, NYU/ Poly, NYU and Pratt Institute, the school offers a solid academic program enhanced by unique experiences for students interested in the fields of science, technology, engineering, the arts and math.

Next fall, SJHS will offer new opportunities for learning with the iPad 1:1 Program. With access to boundless information and guided by a talented faculty, students will travel beyond the traditional classroom and engage in interactive, project-based learning across the curriculum.

SJHS has also been selected as one of 80 international members of the Fab Lab Connect Network. Emerging from MIT’s Center for Bits & Atoms Fab Lab Program, the SJHS Fab Lab will provide a platform for education and innovation using technology and digital fabrication. Students will make (almost) anything and have opportunities to improve lives of people both locally and globally.

Statistics prove that students who attend all girls’ school, like SJHS:

• Have higher aspirations and greater motivation.

• Feel challenged to achieve at higher levels.

• Feel more comfortable being themselves and expressing their ideas.

• Show greater gains on core academic and life skills.

Eighth-grade girls are required to take the Test for Admission into Catholic High Schools (TACHS) to be considered for admission and an academic scholarship.
