Our Mission

“St. Joseph Catholic School, serving as a ministry of St. Joseph Catholic Parish, is dedicated to celebrating and educating the whole child. Recognizing parents as the primary educators of their children, we work collaboratively to foster a love for all that is genuinely beautiful, good and true.


Our Vision

We are committed to providing a rigorous curriculum that motivates students toward an intrinsic love of learning, leading them to an understanding that learning is desirable for its own sake.   We seek to immerse our students in a Christ-centered environment, so they may develop the courage to seek the Wisdom to trust in and cooperate with God’s grace in their lives, thus empowering them to use the gifts that God has given them to live happy integrated lives as disciples of Christ in our diverse and technological world.
