St. Joseph Catholic School provides students opportunities for academic excellence in a setting that promotes Christ-centered living, service to the community, and personal spiritual growth within our Catholic family.
We believe it is our mission to assist parents, the primary educators, in the formation of the child as a totally developed person who is spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically mature; form citizens who recognize their dignity as God's children and direct their energies and talents toward building God's kingdom; provide a quality faculty and staff dedicated to upholding high standards of performance and adherence to Catholic values for themselves as well as their students; respect the dignity of each individual by providing a suitable, flexible plan of instruction within a sound, positive learning environment; enhance communication throughout the school community; meet curriculum objectives developed at the national, state, and diocesan levels through a variety of programs covering all basic subject areas, art, music, technology, foreign language, and physical education; teach students the importance of self-discipline and the necessity of making moral, healthy decisions in areas affecting their well-being; and uphold a mutual respect among parents, students, administration, faculty, and staff in order to create a safe, supportive learning environment.
