SJHS Welcomes 196 Students into the Class of 2023

TRUMBULL— St. Joseph High School is proud to announce that on Tuesday, September 3, the school welcomed 196 freshmen into the Class of 2023 on their first full day of classes. The school currently enrolls 819 students in grades 9-12.

The Class of 2023 is comprised of students from 51 different middle schools across 24 towns in Fairfield, New Haven and Hartford Counties. These students will add an impressive, diverse and accomplished set of attributes to the current student body. Achievements include: first-place essayists, first-place poetry contest winners, three student council presidents, seven state champion athletes, 62 percent National Junior Honor Society members, four karate black belts and one state finalist inventor.

“We expect great things from the Class of 2023,” writes Jessica Costa, director of marketing & enrollment, “but we do not leave their success to chance. With careful intention, our students are shaped into well-rounded global citizens with the tools to succeed not only in college, but in life beyond the classroom walls.”

While freshmen students begin their high school journeys at St. Joes, they aren’t the only ones new to the school. Assistant Principal, Scott Clough, who started at St. Joes over the summer, plans to further advance SJHS academic program offerings. Scott Clough has replaced Nancy DiBuono as assistant principal – as Nancy was appointed to her new role as the school’s principal.

“We are enthusiastically embracing our new roles at St. Joes,” remarked Nancy DiBuono. The faculty, staff and administration are working together to ensure that the 2019-2020 school year will challenge and motivate each student.”

All students at St. Joseph High School began the school year with orientations prior to Labor Day, but the first official start of the school year was Tuesday, September 3.
