St. Joseph of the Holy Family founded St. Joseph's School in 1860 as part of its community outreach mission.
At the time, the church stood as the only Catholic parish on Manhattan's west side, so even though the school started with 30 students, it quickly grew.
By 1880, the school faced a problem--with close to 200 students enrolled and more joining each year, the work of its original, small staff was not enough.
The school's prayers were answered in 1882, when five School Sisters of Notre Dame arrived to help.
We believe that each student is unique and special and we share with parents the opportunity of nurturing a positive self-image.
Our efforts to develop the totally integrated person are oriented toward making the student a liberated and educated person; one who will socially mix with others and use his/her potential to work for the human rights of all.
In an atmosphere of mutual trust and security, we strive to instill in our students an understanding and appreciation of the diversity of family structures and ethnic cultures to which they belong.
We strive to provide the basic skills, applied knowledge and global view needed for life experiences.
