God has called us to care for His children and we try each day to do our very best. EVERY child matters. Our mission is to assist families in the education of the whole child in an atmosphere rich in Catholic teachings and Christian values.

We integrate religious truth and values with life. We strive to create a Christian educational environment conductive to spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, physical, and aesthetic growth of each student committed to the care of Springfield Catholic Schools. We believe that prime responsibility for creating this unique Christian school climate rests with the teachers, as individuals and as a community. As an educational community, our intent is to enable our students, through a challenging curriculum, to reach their full potential as Christian individuals.

School Reviews

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!
