The SJR Green Knight

Saint Joseph Regional High School (known as SJR, St. Joe's or Joe's) is a private, Roman Catholic, college preparatory school for boys, located on a 33-acre (130,000 m2) campus in Montvale, in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. The school operates under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark.[8] St. Joseph Regional High School was founded in 1962 by the Brothers of Saint Francis Xavier.[9] The school has been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools since 1968.[4]

As of the 2019–20 school year, the school had an enrollment of 505 students and 32.5 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 15.5:1. The school's student body was 71.5% (361) White, 10.5% (53) Black, 8.7% (44) Hispanic, 6.9% (35) two or more races and 2.4% (12) Asian.[2] In 2014, St. Joseph Regional High School graduated its 7,000th student.[10]

The St. Joseph curriculum includes honors and Advanced Placement courses, and has college credit courses available through Saint Peter's University in Jersey City, New Jersey.[9]

Academics

Saint Joseph Regional offers courses in English, world/US history, science, foreign language, mathematics, theology, and a number of electives, most with accelerated and honor levels. The school offers a number of Advanced Placement and college-level courses. A Virtual High School program provides an opportunity for qualified students to take courses online through an educational consortium endorsed by the United States Department of Education. Students can take classes as diverse as Mandarin Chinese and Marine Biology.

Students may apply to the National Honor Society, Spanish National Honor Society, French Honor Society, and Tri-M Music Honor Society.

Athletics

The Saint Joseph Regional High School Green Knights[3] participate in the United Division of the Big North Conference, a super conference comprised of public and private high schools in Bergen and Passaic counties that was established as part of a realignment of sports leagues in Northern New Jersey and operates under the supervision of the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association.[11] The school had temporarily competed in the North Jersey Tri-County Conference in 2009–10, which was set up to operate on an interim basis while new conferences were established.[12] Until the NJSIAA's 2009 realignment, the school had participated in Division C of the Northern New Jersey Interscholastic League, which included high schools located in Bergen, Essex and Passaic counties, and was separated into three divisions based on NJSIAA size classification.[13] With 772 students in grades 10-12, the school was classified by the NJSIAA for the 2019–20 school year as Non-Public A for most athletic competition purposes, which included schools with an enrollment of 381 to 1,454 students in that grade range (equivalent to Group II for public schools).[14] The football team competes in the United Red division of the North Jersey Super Football Conference, which includes 112 schools competing in 20 divisions, making it the nation's biggest football-only high school sports league.[15][16] The school was classified by the NJSIAA as Non-Public Group IV for football for 2018–2020.[17]

The Green Knights have achieved league, county and state titles in football, baseball, basketball, wrestling, golf, ice hockey, and winter and spring track and field athletics in the last two decades. The Green Knights' rivals include Bergen Catholic High School, Don Bosco Preparatory High School and Paramus Catholic High School.

Fall sports

SJR varsity fall sports include football, cross country, and soccer.

Long considered a regional powerhouse, SJR football has grown to become one of the best high school football programs in the country. The football team won the NJSIAA state sectional championships 1987 and 1988 (Non-Public A North), 1995 and 1996 (Non-Public Group III), 1997 (Non-Public Group IV), 1999–2005, 2008, 2009, 2011–2013 and 2016 (Non-Public Group III), and 2018 (Non-Public Group IV).[18] The SJR varsity football team had a streak of seven Non-Public Group III titles through the 2005 season, a run ended with a 35-28 loss to Holy Cross High School on a touchdown scored in the final minute of the first round of the 2006 playoffs.[19] The football team has also had its share of national rankings by USA Today, including #8 in 1995, #11 in 1997, #7 in 1999, and #23 in 2004. SJR has also been ranked #1 in the state in 1995, 1997, and 1999. Other teams have been listed in the nation's top 25 rankings during various parts of the year.[20][21] SJR was ranked No. 11 in the nation in the final High School Football America Top 25 in 2013.[22] In 2015, the team finished No. 19 nationally in the High School Football America Top 50.[23] SJR has received The Star-Ledger Trophy in 1995, 1997, and 1999, 2012 and 2013, recognizing the team as the #1 football team in New Jersey. A 7-0 win by the 1987 team against Bergen Catholic High School in the playoff finals gave the team the Parochial A North state sectional title and a 9-2 record for the season.[24] The 1988 team finished the season with a 10-1 record after winning the Non-Public A North sectional title after a 29-18 victory against Delbarton School in the championship game.[25] A 32-26 win in the 1995 Parochial Group III championship game at Giants Stadium against DePaul Catholic High School gave the team an 11-0 record for the season.[26] The team won the 2000 Parochial Group III title in 2000 with a 54-29 win against Pope John XXIII Regional High School in the finals.[27] The 2001 team won the Parochial Group III title with a 17-9 victory in the tournament final against Immaculata High School.[28] The 2008 team finished with an 11–1 record and won against Immaculate by a score of 27–6 in the Non-Public Group III state championship game.[29] The 2009 varsity football team defeated Immaculata again in the state championship 14–0. Saint Joe's beat Delbarton School 45–22 in the 2011 Non-Public Group III title game played at Kean University to earn its 15th state championship title.[30] In 2013, the Green Knights defeated Pope John XXIII, 62–14; it was the fifth in sixth seasons for SJR. In 2016, the program won its 18th state title, winning the Non-Public Group III state sectional championship by a score of 26–17 against DePaul Catholic High School in the tournament final.[31] The team won the Non-Public Group IV title, the program's first in Group IV, with a 13-0 win against Bergen Catholic High School.[32] The rivalry with Don Bosco was listed at 15th on NJ.com's 2017 list "Ranking the 31 fiercest rivalries in N.J. HS football". Don Bosco leads the rivalry with a 30–23 overall record as of 2017, which includes periods in the 1990s and 2010s when the two schools played each other on Thanksgiving. The school's rivalry with Bergen Catholic was listed at 14th, with Bergen Catholic leading with a 31–17 overall record.[33]

The SJR basketball team has won a sectional championship; three county championships, most recently in 2005; and five league championships, most recently in 2005, 2007, and in 2009, where they beat Teaneck High School by a score of 63–50, less than 48 hours after losing to them in the County Jamboree finals 55–53 and ended their season with a record of 16–2 in the NNJIL.[34] In 2005, the SJR basketball team were state finalists, but lost to Seton Hall Preparatory School 63–54 in the Non-Public North A state sectional tournament.

SJR wrestling has been a long dominant force in northern New Jersey and was inducted into the New Jersey Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2005.

The ice hockey team was the state champion in 1984, 1985 and 1991, and won the Gordon Cup in 1986, 1990 and 1992.[36] In 2010, SJR hockey, who entered the NJTCC Cup as the lowest seed, upset top-seeded Passaic Valley High School and DePaul en route to the championship on February 28. In 2011, the Green Knight Hockey team defeated Hackensack in the first round 6–3, and then defeated Ramapo High School by a score of 2-1 before losing 2–0 to second-seeded Wayne Valley High School in the finals. In the winter of 2013, the SJR Ice Hockey team won their fourth league championship appearance in a row. In 2015, the team reached the state quarterfinals after upsetting the #2 ranked Don Bosco Preparatory High School in the Round of 32. The Green Knight Hockey Team reached the state quarterfinals once again in 2016, losing to Pope John XXIII Regional High School in overtime. The team has consistently been ranked in the top 20 ranking for New Jersey and will rejoin the Gordon Conference after spending nearly two decades in the Big North Conference.

However, St. Joseph, using a combination of its powerful running game and a late pass interference call on its final drive, was able to squeak out a 32-26 victory in the Parochial Group 1 [sic] final at Giants Stadium. After the game, Lennon made no excuses for the loss. Sure, DePaul (8-3) had played St. Joseph (11-0) which will probably remain the No. 1 team in the state tough."
