Introduced as the Household Program in 2001 and restructured in 2020, the SJCS House Program is designed to cultivate a family atmosphere on campus where students are known, accepted, and loved as individuals, as well as to provide student leadership opportunities. This program helps to ensure that all students’ academic, personal, and spiritual needs are known and met during their years here.
The student body is divided into four Houses, and within this structure, students are split into 38 small, single-gender Households. The four Houses are Bakhita, Drexel, Molla and Romero. Each of the four Houses has two faculty members who serve as Head of House and two senior House Leaders. Each Household, then, has a faculty member who serves as the Household Dean and two student leaders whose roles are to make all students feel welcomed and loved.

Boy and Girl Households form Brother/Sister Teams that come together for activities, competition, and camaraderie. Households promote the school’s mission by providing greater care to all students as individuals, while at the same time strengthening a sense of community.
The Household Dean becomes the primary contact with the family to help ensure each student’s success while at St. Joseph’s. The Household Program also includes a place for parents to get involved, belong, and feel part of the school community.
