"Get excited about coming to school here, you have no idea how much you are going to love this place! As I look back on my years at St. Joseph, I realize these have been the best years of my life. St. Joseph has given me many experiences to grow as a student and a person through education, friendships, and faith. I’m going off to high school and I wish I could stay here for just a little bit longer, so please cherish every moment. These walls hold so much laughter, smiles, and great memories. My advice is to get involved, do your work, be nice, always smile, and don’t do anything you wouldn’t want to share with the Dominicans". Savannah Smith, SJS Class of 2014

Scholar,” given to students who have scores of “four” or “five” on eight or more A.P. exams and a minimum average of “four” on all exams taken. Those students are Robert Faust and Josh McConnell. Both students are attending The University of South Carolina in August.
Nine St. Joseph School seventh graders participated in the Duke Talent Identification Program. To qualify for participation in the Duke program, these students scored in the top 5% of students taking the IOWA tests around the country last year. The students took the ACT (a college entrance exam) with high school students in February.
Five students earned scores on the ACT which qualified them for state recognition. These students will be recognized at a ceremony at Vanderbilt University in May.
One student earned scores on the ACT which qualified for Grand Recognition and has been invited to Duke University in May for a recognition ceremony. The grand recognition ceremony honors seventh graders who have earned scores equal to or better than 90 percent of college-bound seniors who took the same tests.
