St. Joseph High School



St. Joseph High School is excited to offer mini courses to our students each year in January. These popular week-long classes provide students with the opportunity to explore a number of special interest classes including dance, BBQ preparation, and other non-traditional courses. 
The overwhelming consensus of students and faculty is that mini courses are a great way to begin the second semester of school! For more information on the classes being offered this year, please refer to the Mini-Course Offerings Booklet at the bottom of this page.
