All-Girls Environment:

Girls in a single-sex educational environment consistently demonstrate higher levels of academic performance, test scores, career aspirations, greater self-respect and confidence, and better focus in the classroom. They have greater opportunities for leadership roles and are well-equipped to overcome gender stereotypes and barriers to success.

All-girls does not equal no fun. In fact, many of our students say that Josephinum is more enjoyable than the co-ed schools they used to attend because at Josephinum, girls are free to be themselves. Students enjoy a vibrant student life through participation in clubs, activities and varsity sports. School dances and activity nights offer many opportunities to hang out with boys, and of course we have a senior prom.

Beyond The Classroom:

Josephinum students get involved and know how to have fun. Our school has an exciting student life with a number of activities that meet a variety of interests. Through their involvement in student government, sports, clubs, and activities, students put their leadership and teamwork skills in action, contribute to the school community, and build life-long friendships. And, we offer opportunities to hang out with boys at school dances and activity nights.
