Our School

Welcome to Saint Joan of Arc Catholic High School. I am privileged to serve as the Principal of such a great school community. Our dedicated staff and I extend a warm welcome to all returning students and parents. We also extend a heartfelt welcome to new families joining Saint Joan of Arc Catholic High School for the first time. We believe you will find great value in being part of our vibrant learning community, where a rich tapestry of academic, spiritual, cultural, and co-curricular opportunities awaits.

At Saint Joan of Arc, we believe in creating an environment where every student feels safe to express themselves, take risks, and explore new horizons. We understand that making mistakes is a part of learning and growth, and we encourage our students to step out of their comfort zones without fear of judgment. statue of St. Joan of ArcIn this supportive community, we hold each other accountable not to be perfect, but to be our best selves. Forgiveness is a cornerstone of our faith, and it extends to our educational philosophy. We recognize that learning involves both success and setbacks. Here, forgiveness is not just a word; it’s a practice that helps us move forward, stronger and wiser. We also uphold a commitment to excellence in all that we do.

We believe that striving for excellence is a way to honor our God-given talents and potential. Whether it’s in academics, arts, athletics, or service, we encourage our students to aim high and give their best effort. We envision our community as a place where staff, students, and parents thrive, creating an atmosphere that is welcoming and inclusive. Collectively, we will maintain an environment that cultivates healthy and positive relationships with all members of our community. In doing so, we aspire to grow in grace and knowledge, leading lives characterized by equity, faith, inclusion, integrity, and respect, inspired by the teachings of Christ. We take immense pride in our school, our accomplishments, and the opportunities we offer. Our staff and I eagerly anticipate an exciting, challenging, and enjoyable year ahead. We look forward to getting to know each and every one of you as the year unfolds.
Together WE can!
