St. Justin's School was first opened in 1958 to offer parishioners of St. Justin's Parish a place to send their children to school. From the start it has been a co-educational institution.

Most St. Justin graduates attend Catholic high schools in the area including, Mitty, Bellarmine Prep, St. Francis, Notre Dame, and Presentation.
