The St. Joseph School Catholic School Community is a faith community of disciples dedicated to deepening their relationship with Christ through Prayer, Worship and Service.

We at St. Joseph Catholic School participate in the Church’s mission of education by providing a Catholic environment of Christian life and learning.  We strive to integrate the Gospel values in our daily lives and encourage our students to grow in their relationship with God, in their self-esteem and in their respect for one another.


Religion Curriculum

Our students receive daily religion instruction based upon the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Religion Standards.  The Religion Standards are based upon the Catechism of the Catholic Church and include
school-wide Living our Faith standards and grade-level content standards.
The Living our Faith standards are consistent from TK-8 and are intended to extend beyond
Religion class to all aspects of the school.


Through an active prayer life, our students strengthen their relationship with Christ, thus strengthening them to intentionally perform the Spiritual Works of Mercy.
