St. Joseph Catholic School is guided by the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose legacy is preserved and carried on by the Catholic Church.
The school provides children with a quality education that will enable them to become confident, active, and moral leaders in their families as well as in their faith and social communities.
Our goals are to provide a program of religious education based on Catholic theology, scripture, tradition, and liturgical worship that fosters in each child an internalized love of God, neighbor, and self; to provide a varied and flexible educational curriculum program built on a strong, basic foundation that meets and challenges each child's intellectual, emotional, and physical abilities; to provide a positive learning environment that encourages, reinforces, and rewards each child's efforts leading to healthy and wholesome selfknowledge; to integrate religious values, based on Catholic teaching of social justice, with secular knowledge in all areas of the curriculum; and to teach decision-making skills that result in the formation of an informed individual capable of active participation and positive contributions to Church, country, and the world.
