Some Words from a Charger...


Hi! I am Genna Foster, a senior at St. Joseph High School. Throughout my four years here I have taken honors courses and am currently taking an Advanced Placement Course. I am the President of Student Council, a member of both National Honor Society and Spanish Honor Society, a writer for “The Lance”, a Kairos Retreat leader, and Captain on the volleyball and soccer teams.

School has always been something I enjoyed. I have always wanted to learn new things, and I very much enjoy the social aspect that comes along with it!! When it came to choosing a high school, there were three things I felt were important the school needed to have: strong academics with supporting teachers, a sense of family and community, and a good school spirit throughout the student body. St. Joseph High School is the school that showcases these three qualities the best. READ MORE...

Sinacore Brothers

 SJHS Alums Thrive on Work

Both Siblings Devoted to Working with Youth

Written by: Tony Quattrochi, Development Staff Member

When Matt Sinacore, SJHS Class of ‘07, returned to his alma mater to teach, he surprised himself. “Originally I wanted to teach History, based in large part on the effect of having had Brother Peter Hannon and Mr. Zitzer for classes, but circumstances in college (Loyola University) changed my direction.” Matt majored in English, although he’s never entirely shed history as an educational resource while he teaches literature. “I find it almost impossible to teach a book without going in depth with the history surrounding the book. I also love the conversation that books provide for us. Fiction or nonfiction, the events in a well-written story can teach us so much about our own humanity. I also learned a great deal from Ms. Fredriksen... READ MORE

Stay in School!

SJHS Alum Ensures Future For University Students

Written by: Tony Quattrochi, Development Staff Member

Quotes about the value of an education are seemingly endless. Advice on the importance of staying in school is also plentiful. But action speaks louder than words and one St. Joseph High School graduate is truly making those words come alive. John Stachniak, SJHS Class of ‘82, is the National Director of Institutional Advancement for the DeVry Education Group. Responsible for the strategic development of national fundraising activity, John helps ensure that as many financially challenged students as possible are able to attend the family of schools that comprise the DeVry Education Group. “I lead a small but mighty team that raises resources for scholarships that help students continue on to graduation and achieve their education and career goals.” By engaging alumni and cultivating donor prospects, John has found much success. Last year his efforts provided $1 million in scholarships to students who might not have been able to attend DeVry otherwise.

Impacting the lives of these deserving students by awarding them such resources to stay in school is the most rewarding aspect of John’s job. “Seeing how students balance their education with the other challenges of working and having families, it is incredibly gratifying to see how a scholarship can make all the difference.”  One of the challenges....READ MORE
