About St. Joseph School
The learning environment at St. Joseph School is influenced by every person in the school community. The understanding of the process of learning, the implications of good teaching strategies, and the effective use of assessment coupled with the understanding of the total learner development creates a vibrant and ever-growing learning community.
St. Joseph Catholic School exists to foster four basic purposes of Catholic Education: the teaching of Catholic Doctrine, the teaching of academics, the building of community, and the witnessing of Christ by service to others. At St. Joseph School, both children and adults strive to uphold the dignity of all human life, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, or religion because every human is a unique creation of God, made in His image and likeness.
Mission & Philosophy
Emulating Christ, the Master Teacher, the faculty and staff are committed to the total growth and development of each child. We look to foster the children’s intellectual progress as well as their spiritual, emotional, social, and physical maturity. St. Joseph School believes that each of these areas is interconnected and that each must be given adequate attention and encouragement for the complete education of its students. To accomplish these goals, the school must provide a safe and nurturing environment where the staff utilizes multiple techniques and strategies to further the students’ academic and spiritual growth.
In partnership with the parents, St. Joseph School participates in the formation of the children as they grow in the love of Christ, commitment to faith, and service to others in the world. This mission of unity will instill a foundation that empowers the students, who are the learners of today, to be the teachers of tomorrow. The Christ-like atmosphere of respect, love, and concern becomes the framework for the instructional program at St. Joseph School, inspiring a lifetime value system for each student.
