Saint Joseph's College of Maine is a private Catholic college in Standish,
Maine. It is the only Catholic college in Maine. Saint Joseph's was founded by
the Sisters of Mercy in 1912 as an institution for women. The college, run by a
lay and religious Board of Trustees, was located on the convent grounds in
nearby Portland until 1956 when it moved to its lakeside location in Standish.
In 1970, Saint Joseph's became coeducational and six years later began a
distance education program for working adults. Saint Joseph's College Online
offers its online programs to 2,400 students in 50 states and nine countries.
