History and Mission
More than ninety years ago the parishioners of St. Joseph Cathedral decided to take control of their children's education. When St. Joseph School opened its doors in 1925, their vision and dream for Catholic education were realized. That dream continues today at the school's new campus located at the corner of Belmont Street and Somerville Street in Manchester, New Hampshire.
St. Joseph is built on a solid foundation of academic excellence, Christian values, and Catholic traditions. The school continues to grow with technological advancement and dedication to the arts. Whatever their interests, St. Joseph provides the setting and encouragement to help students develop their skills and to explore new opportunities for growth.
St. Joseph Regional Junior High School is the only Manchester-based Catholic school focused exclusively on the education of 7th and 8th grade students. This wonderfully unique setting provides an unparalleled opportunity to design programs specifically geared toward this wondrous age.
Furthering Christian values and providing the tools necessary so that each student can reach his or her own God-given potential are our measures of success. Educating the whole student to become a caring, morally responsible and responsive member of society is the ultimate mission of St. Joseph Regional Junior High School.
