Message from the Advancement Team

Welcome to the Office of Advancement.  We are all part of the Saint Joseph High School community and we work together to achieve and advance the mission.   Although SJ is an LA Archdiocese (ADLA) high school, we have NEVER been subsidized by the ADLA.  We operate the school from student tuition and fees, and rely on contributions from our generous benefactors to "fill the gaps."  The LA Archdiocese has established challenging goals for SJ…we must increase enrollment to a level commensurate with our operating costs and campus footprint…a level that is comfortable and sustainable…a level where we can continue to provide a superior, Catholic, college prep education as well as the wide variety of outstanding co-curricular activities.  


Our outreach and recruitment has expanded beyond the traditional, local Catholic grammar schools.  Young women from all over LA County, Orange County, and even as far as Riverside County, want to attend Saint Joseph High School.  We also have a tremendous International Student Exchange Program and currently have close to 50 young women from China, Viet Nam, Korea, Thailand, Mexico and Spain. We plan to increase our international program in the 2016-2017 school year.  


To attract and retain students, SJ has significantly expanded the scholarship and tuition assistance program. Our goal is to assure that every deserving young woman can attend Saint Joseph High School if she wants to.


We raise funds for scholarships and aid through the following events and campaigns:

  • Annual Appeal
  • Special events, like the Jester Jubilee, our annual premier fundraising gala, and Mother-Daughter Brunch
  • Family Pledge Program
  • Employer Matching Gift Program
  • Grant writing
  • Planned Giving program

It’s easy to give! Simply click on the “Give Now” or "Club 64" option on the right.


Thank you in advance for your support.
