Why SJCS?

Thank you for your interest in St. Joseph Catholic School. We serve nearly 450 students in grades Pre-K4 through eighth grades. Our student population is drawn from over 14 parishes, and it is comprised of a diverse mix of social, economic, and ethnic backgrounds. Our faculty believes that building a strong foundation in academics is important and character building, critical. The soul of St. Joseph Catholic School is its faculty and staff, who are dedicated to serving the needs of each student.

Although we are very proud of our excellent academic program and excited about our bright future, our foremost focus as a Catholic school is to teach our faith and assist students to deepen their relationship with God.  This is at the heart of everything we do here at St. Joseph Catholic School, and always has been. 

Students who come to St. Joseph Catholic School are exposed to a rigorous curriculum as they are prepared for the next step of their academic journey, no matter where they choose to attend high school.  Our school has a deep-rooted belief in educating the whole child; to help the children grow spiritually, as well as academically.  We feel everything centers around Christ and our mission lies in helping children further develop into responsible, Catholic citizens of the world.

Our students see the importance of commitment, hard work, and community involvement.  They leave our doors knowing not only that they can make a difference in the world, but it is their duty and responsibility to enact the positive changes the world needs.  By choosing to send your child to St. Joseph Catholic School you can be assured that your child is prepared academically.  We teach facts which require memorization, but also critical thinking skills; we teach students how to think, how to learn, and we instill in them a love for lifetime learning.

Parent Testimonials:

"I chose St Joseph Catholic School for my son due to the Blue Ribbon Status maintained for over a decade, small class sizes, diversity of student population, friendliness and capability of the staff at all levels. The teachers are incredible and have always been able to speak about my son's successes, as well as his challenges, with great specificity. The support staff are as impressive as the teaching staff which provides for a well rounded education. My son is about to graduate 8th grade and most of his previous teachers are still here, still teaching and still inspiring their students. My son is incredibly well prepared for high school and beyond due to the exceptional experiences at St Joseph Catholic School."  - Amy S.

"St. Joseph’s Catholic School was selected as the school of choice for our daughter based on the religious environment, Blue Ribbon academics, and the outstanding Teachers and Staff. However, what we received out of our first year of attending SJCS; in the middle of a Pandemic in uncharted waters, was not what we based our decision on for this school... it was so much more. We have experienced memories and events that you will never see or hear of while touring SJCS. This school has given their all for not only the students but also for the parents. We are beyond satisfied in our selection of SJCS for our daughter. Why we are satisfied is not something that can be written in a few sentences, rather it is something to experience; and once you do...it will be memories that last a lifetime.
