OGDEN — Saint Joseph Catholic High School stands as a beacon of academic excellence, athletic prowess and spiritual growth. Despite our small class size, this year’s graduating class of 29 students has achieved remarkable accomplishments across various domains. From the attainment of National Merit Scholarships by Madilyne Beaudry and Elijah Norman to athletic signings and the embodiment of exemplary character, our students exemplify the values of scholarship, sportsmanship and faith.

Academic excellence is not merely a goal at St. Joseph Catholic High School, it is a way of life. This year, we celebrate the success of our two National Merit Scholars, whose outstanding performance on the PSAT/NMSQT has earned them prestigious recognition. Their dedication to scholarship serves as an inspiration to their peers and a testament to the rigorous academic standards upheld at our institution.

Moreover, St. Joseph Catholic High School takes pride in awarding more than $2 million in scholarship monies to deserving students. These scholarships, bestowed upon students based on their academic achievements, extracurricular involvement and service to the community, exemplify our commitment to supporting the pursuit of higher education and unlocking the potential of every student.

As we bid farewell to our graduating Class of 2024, we rejoice in their accomplishments and the bright futures that lie ahead. These graduates have been accepted at more than 56 different universities that span the nation and represent a diverse array of academic disciplines. From Ivy League institutions to renowned state universities, our students have earned acceptance to esteemed colleges, reflecting the strength of their academic preparation and the guidance of our dedicated faculty.

In addition to their academic achievements, our students excel on the playing field, embodying the values of teamwork, discipline and sportsmanship. This year, we celebrate the accomplishments of our three Academic All State Athletes (Anh Do – tennis; Elijah Norman – theater and Caroline Mullin – theater), whose commitment to excellence both in academics and athletics sets them apart as true role models for their peers.

Furthermore, the Class of 2024 is proud to announce one D1 Athletic Signing by Isiah Flores, who signed with the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. This student-athlete’s dedication and talent have earned him a scholarship to compete at the Division 1 level, representing not only his individual achievements but also the strength of our athletic programs.

Beyond the realms of academics and athletics, St. Joseph Catholic High School is committed to nurturing students who embody the values of compassion, integrity and service. Our students are not only scholars and athletes but also compassionate individuals who strive to make a positive impact on the world around them.

Through service projects, retreats and religious education programs, we foster an environment where students can deepen their faith, cultivate their moral compass and develop a strong sense of purpose. Each senior serves more than 140 hours of service during their high school career. At St. Joseph Catholic High School, we believe that true success is not measured solely by academic or athletic achievements but by the content of one’s character and the impact they make on the lives of others.

In conclusion, the achievements of our students at St. Joseph Catholic High School are a testament to the unwavering dedication of our faculty, the support of our community and the limitless potential of our students. Despite the small class size, our students have proven that they are truly mighty in their accomplishments and commitment to excellence. We look forward to the continued growth, success and positive impact they will undoubtedly bring to the world.

Congratulations to the Class of 2024, you have made us proud!
