Our Philosophy:

St. Joseph School strives to educate each child entrusted to its care in a nurturing Christ-centered environment. We believe that a Catholic education is a partnership between parents and educators. Our Mission:

To give priority to each child's human needs and values
  • ...To challenge the child's ability to think, to question, to decide
  • ...To impart knowledge that fits into the child's present world
  • ...To recognize and develop the child's unique and full potential guided by the belief that every child has the potential for greatness
  • ...To free each child from ignorance, prejudice and self-centeredness
  • ...To stand for excellence in education.
