OUR VISION
Excellence in Catholic Education

SCHOOL MISSION
Guided by the Holy Spirit, St. Joseph Catholic School Community nutures spiritual growth, provides challenging intellectual opportunities and encourages each child to become the follower of Jesus Christ that God calls him or her to be.

OUR PHILOSOPHY
St. Joseph School is a Catholic, co-educational elementary school that exists to promote education and formation of children into maturing Catholics.  As an extension of the church, the school shares the church's educational mission to preach the Gospel, to build a community of faith, to foster family spirituality, and to form the disciples of Jesus ready to spread God's message and to give themselves in the service of others.

In addition, the school provides opportunities to pursue academic excellence, build meaningful relationships, learn responsible citizenship, and develop skills for ethical leadership.  To create an environment that responds to the whole child, the school strives to work with the unique personality, talents and needs of each student.

The school, the church, and society all contribute to the formation of the child.  Parents, however, are the primary educators of their children.  Therefore, parental involvement is a key component of the education program at St. Joseph School.
