Welcome to the St. Joseph Catholic School website!
“Educating the mind, Expanding the heart”- it is the motto of St. Joseph Catholic School and it is woven throughout the fabric of the school. For over 63 years, St. Joseph Catholic School has been providing a quality education to students. We hold high expectations for our students, and they consistently meet those expectations. The school has earned the prestigious National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence Award twice-- in 2003 and again in 2016! When we use the words educating the mind, we strive to instill in our students not only a sense of the importance of a first-rate education, but also the importance of life-long education and the attainable goals that are within their grasp.
At the heart of our school is our religion. Students are taught to develop a personal relationship with our gracious God through textbooks, the Bible, retreats, sacramental preparation, and the weekly school Mass. Additionally, our students are taught to live out their faith through works of service to others. Service projects allow our students to contribute their time and talent, and to learn first hand how they can make a difference in the lives of others. Expanding the heart is part of our motto, but more importantly, it is woven throughout the lives of our students.
“Educating the mind, Expanding the heart” – we are a school where we embrace our Catholic identity, and are steeped in a long history of educational excellence. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our phenomenal school!
