St. Joseph Cathedral School work to give our students a broad and deep knowledge of God and what He created, and the ability to understand this through the lens of what God has revealed to us.
Of particular focus are the teachings and practices of the Catholic faith, as it has been preserved in Sacred Scripture and Tradition for two-thousand years.
In athletics and other extra-curricular activities, our coaches, players, and spectators are to model sportsmanship and acknowledge the role of God's hand in even the smallest victories.
In our social development, we are to see each other as fellow members of the body of Christ, bringing the same dignity and respect to our relationships that we would to Christ.
Spiritually, enthusiastic participation in the sacraments and the liturgical life of the Church are to be the focus in our Christian development, culminating in an emphasis on the Eucharist, which is the source and summit of our Catholic faith.
Flowing from this is the development of a healthy prayer life and a respect for the sacrament of reconciliation as the means by which we are brought back into a right relationship with God after slipping in our journey toward sanctification.
St. Joseph Cathedral School is a ministry of the Cathedral parish and the Catholic Diocese of Jefferson City.
The school operates under the direction of the Diocesan Catholic School Office.
The principal directs daily activities of the school.
