We strive to inspire a passion for learning that allows children to be willing to take academic risks, learn from their mistakes, and develop the perseverance they need to succeed in our competitive world. Through cooperative learning, our students strengthen their academic, social, and communication skills, while enjoying the sense of pride that comes from helping another student. Our continuously evolving curriculum provides students with the tools they need to become confident and creative builders of their future.As Christian educators, we guide our children as they develop a deeper awareness of their spiritual life and their growing relationship with God. We encourage them to explore new ideas and beliefs as we work to foster a sense of integrity and strong moral values.

I attended Saint Joseph's school, grades 1 through 8 (graduated in 1954) and remember it so fondly. The Sisters of Saint Joseph prepared us well. The parish was the center of our lives.
