The Preschool to 12th Grade Advantage

When you choose Saint Joseph Regional School, you are choosing a

preschool to eighth grade education within a single school.  For children, this provides continuity and stability, especially during the crucial middle  school years.  This stable environment nurtures self-confidence and  security that is priceless.  As children grow and develop, a continuity of  learning is essential for ensuring that early academic success and development are built upon by consistent educational experiences.

In addition, Our Lady of Mercy Academy high school opened in 2020SJRS and Mercy Academy share a single campus with two separate buildings.  This provides even further continuity for families to have all of their children within a cohesive, connected environment.


This overall structure also presents opportunities for children from different grade levels to interact and work together on a regular basis in a variety of ways. From reading buddies, to helping with projects, to older students escorting younger students hand-in-hand to weekly all-school Masses, older students become role models for those in their care.  Through the years as students progress, they grow and embrace their leadership roles within the school community.


Many families also appreciate the preschool to twelfth grade structure because it allows them to have all of their children on the same school campus and on the same schedule throughout the elementary, middle, and high school years.  More importantly, over the years, families develop strong bonds, a sense of trust and a peace of mind that is truly invaluable.
