Sports programs include cross country, basketball, volleyball, and spring track. Annual school event highlights include the Fall Talent Show, the Christmas Pageant, the Basketball Tournament, and the Spring Cabaret, to name a few.
Aside from teaching a strong educational curriculum, SJE instills strong faith-based values, and a sense of service to each other and the community.
