Saint Joseph School was awarded a 10-year renewal of accreditation in February 2020 by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.  This accreditation followed an extensive two-year self-study of all aspects of our school, including mission, health and safety, governance, academics, and student experience.  We are proud to have met and passed every standard for accreditation!  Furthermore, we are fortunate to have been commended in many areas: 

“The Commission commends the entire school community for its commitment to the education and nurturing of its students.  In addition, the Commission commends the School for welcoming its racially, culturally, geographically, religiously, academically, and socioeconomically diverse student population.”
