- St. Joseph Catholic School opened its door in August of 1961 to a total of 100 students in four classrooms.
- The staff of three sisters and one lay teacher taught grades one through eight.
- There were two grades per classroom until 1969, when the North wing was added.

This is accomplished through the faculty and staff being responsive to the needs of the students, empowering them with skills and factual knowledge that stimulate creative thinking, and by uniting with the community in prayer, work, and love.
