St. Joseph School promotes a positive, structured, safe and nurturing environment in which the whole child may develop. We provide a quality education program with emphasis on the cultivation of Catholic Christian values and virtues helping our students to become the person God intends.
The benchmark of our success as a school is not only measured in grades or percentages, but in the development of individuals ready to explore possibilities and meet the challenges of life. It is our goal to guide students to extend themselves to others in order to do the work of Christ, and to always rise to their potential with confidence and compassion. A continual effort is made in developing the whole child - spiritually, intellectually, affectively, socially, physically, and emotionally.
Toward this end, emphasis at St. Joseph School is placed on the cultivation of Christian values and attitudes. The basic educational objectives are enriched by religious instruction and a Christian atmosphere.
Together with parents, St. Joseph School prepares students for their place in society. A continuing effort is made to develop a close parent-staff relationship to aid the school in guiding each student in his/her ability to reflect, to form character, to learn, and to love. This program is implemented in a creative way, keeping the worth and ability of the individual as the center of all activities. The aim of this approach is to provide an environment which promotes the understanding which is basic to love and respect for God, oneself and neighbor, while assuring each child the opportunity to enjoy a positive, rewarding, and successful school experience.
St. Joseph School is not considered a private or faith-based school. It is a Catholic school in its definition and in its philosophy. The school continues to welcome and respect students of all faiths, racial, and ethnic backgrounds.
