“For it is in giving that we receive.”  

– St. Francis of Assisi

Why Give?

At SJHS, we believe everyone is entitled to a great education, and remain steadfast in our commitment to serving the young women of this city, regardless of their financial means. All our students benefit greatly from the school’s academic program and the emotional, spiritual and moral support that define our philosophy.

Private contributions, which make up nearly 30 percent of SJHS’s revenue, allow us to keep tuition low. In fact, we are the most affordable all-girls private school in New York City. It is only with your help that we are able to fulfill our commitment to unity and justice, and open our doors to any deserving young woman who desires a quality education in a safe and supportive environment. And yet, despite our low tuition, every year we see an increasing number of applicants in need of tuition assistance. Now, more than ever, we need your support.  

We’ve seen the ways in which a St. Joseph education transforms the lives of our students and launches them into bright futures. We invite you to be a part of this transformation.

Help us to empower each student to recognize and maximize her potential, and make a gift today!
