About the Mount
Mount Saint Joseph is a Catholic, college-preparatory school for young men sponsored by the Xaverian Brothers. Faithful to the tradition of Xaverian education, Mount Saint Joseph strives to be a community of growth and learning characterized by enduring personal relationships, an emphasis on spiritual formation, a challenging academic program, and a commitment to justice and peace.
Responsive to the varied educational backgrounds of our students, we utilize a variety of instructional methods and approaches to facilitate their learning. We view active collaboration with parents in the educational process as pivotal to the success of each student. We strive to make ongoing review, reflection, and evaluation part of our response to the needs of our students.
We promote participation in our program of athletic and extra-curricular activities which complements our educational endeavor. We attempt to foster by word and by example the self-discipline necessary for success at every level in the school community, and we encourage the development of personal responsibility so that all students can become contributing citizens in our world.
To teach our students to grow in their faith and to think critically remains the task before us. We take up this challenge in the hope that our students will understand and integrate in their own lives the spiritual values of the Xaverian charism: humility, trust, zeal, compassion, and simplicity. Using their talents in the service of God and one another, our students truly can make a difference for good in our world.
