St Joseph Catholic School
- As Catholic School Educators, we believe St. Joseph School is not only a school, but a community of Faith; we believe those entrusted to us are not only students, but children of God; we believe we are not only educators, but Ministers of Gospel; we believe the values we teach are not only character development, but a call to Holiness; we believe our courses of study are not only academic pursuits, but a search for Truth; we believe the purpose of education is not only for personal gain and the development of society, but for the Transformation of the world.
- St. Joseph Catholic School accepts the mission to help students model the life and teachings of Jesus Christ in their everyday lives.
- Through the use of their talents and God-given gifts, students will learn to serve God and others.
- Christ is the reason for this school, the ever-present teacher in its classes, the model of its faculty, and the inspiration of its students.
- St. Joseph Catholic School is the oldest elementary school in continuous operation in Maumee, Ohio.
- Known for its academic excellence and small class sizes in its Catholic Christian environment, the school is supported by strong parental and faith community involvement.
