Buddy Program

buddy-program2St. Joseph School is proud of our “Buddy” Program in which younger students are formally paired with older students for a variety of experiences, including accompanying each other to school masses and events and sharing special school projects with one another. This is one of the many strengths of our Preschool-8th grade environment, as older students learn the valuable lesson of mentoring and caring for younger students and working with them on academic skills. Additionally, younger students get to know older students who provide encouragement and serve as role models.

Not only does our Buddy Program provide support and enhance the overall sense of community and well-being within the school, but seeing the looks on the faces of our young students as they work with their buddies is priceless.
