The teachers at Saint Joseph School prepare my kids for the future and provide things that a public school can not. Their teaching style challenges my kids to reach beyond their potential academically, socially and morally. Excellent communication, fun events and a caring community add to my experience here. My kids want to go to school and have a love for learning! Join us as we soar to our 100th year!!!

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
