We Are Hawks

Saint Joseph's Hawks have courage, resilience, curiosity. We dare to grow into our true selves by taking chances, working hard and embracing a fast-changing future.

Who We Are

We’re a lively, close community of students, teachers and alumni with eyes wide open for new ideas and experiences. We take risks and we have each other’s backs. We explore widely, pushing the boundaries between art and science, thinking and acting, local and global. We’re looking for purpose, but we’re practical, too, because we want to lead the way to a prosperous future.
