St. Joseph Catholic Academy has been an excellent school for my children for the last 5 years. The teachers are extremely knowledgeable about child development and each child is guided to reach their full potential. The classes are small and this allows the teachers to really understand what each student needs to achieve. I am so glad that my children are learning about their spirituality as well as about art, physical fitness, computers, Spanish, vocal and instrumental music. The newly expanded outdoor play and learning area will be the icing on the cake! If you work in the downtown Springfield area, like I do, it is convenient to bring my kids to school. The onsite aftercare program helps me finish my work day without worrying about the kids. I highly recommend this school. Submitted in July of 2016!
