St. Joseph Catholic Academy Photo #2 - Students are held to high standards in the areas of self-discipline and work-study skills resulting in a quiet productive learning environment.
St. Joseph Catholic Academy Photo #3 - Small class sizes (average 15) allow each and every student to "shine". Teachers are accomplished at helping students to recognize and develop their unique gifts and have the time to help each student in those areas where support might be needed.
St. Joseph Catholic Academy Photo #4 - In addition to the core curriculum which includes Religion, Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Art, students are offered Vocal Music, Honors Choir, Band, PE, Technology, Spanish, and, for our 8th graders, Aplogetics.

- At St. Joseph Catholic Academy we CARE for the whole child...their spiritual, academic, and behavioral sides. We LOVE what we do. 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. Through education, we seek to prepare each student to proclaim the Good News, to translate it to action, and to transform oneself and society with God's help. 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.

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!
