St. Joseph the Worker is a Catholic parish school in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
The Saint Joseph the Worker School community has a value-centered education committed to the threefold ministry of the Church: love, service, and witness.
Parents are the primary educators of their children; the faculty and staff collaborate with them in educating our students spiritually, intellectually, socially, physically, and aesthetically.
We affirm that each child is unique, and, with dignity and respect, we guide each student to attain his/her fullest potential.
We are committed to nuturing a community who encourages understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity.
While celebrating our diversity, we define ourselves as members of one Body, the Body of Christ.
