The Athletics Department at Saint Joseph High School seeks to educate the whole person, the student-athlete, to teach through the values of athletics as a complement to the values and goals of academics. Saint Joseph Athletics will guide and serve the student-athlete to excel in competition, the classroom, and the community. The Department of Athletics will instill the values of Saint Joseph and transform our students in heart and mind through the process-oriented approach to competitive athletics.
Competitive athletics are an important part of the educational process and experience. Students participate in an Athletic program that reflects the school's philosophy of diversity, continued growth and achievement, and the development of the individual's greatest potential. The values of sportsmanship, self-discipline, perseverance, and resilience are often learned through interscholastic sports. Most importantly, Saint Joseph athletics teams provide an opportunity for students from diverse backgrounds to learn the value of integrity, teamwork, cooperation, and mutual respect.
As a member of the Northern Indiana Conference, Saint Joseph has approximately 475 student-athletes or approximately 60% of the student population competing in 22 programs, with 240 students or 30% of our students participating in multiple sports. Saint Joseph values multiple sport athletes and encourages athletics skill development and personal leadership development from a wide range of athletic challenges.
Our student-athletes strive for excellence in their sports and compete hard. At the same time, they work to fulfill their potential in the classroom and to be leaders within our campus community. Athletics plays an important part in fostering personal development and community growth and serves the mission of the school by providing opportunities to reach out and contribute to the greater South Bend community.
