St Joseph Catholic School

  • St. Joseph Catholic School is committed to providing a Catholic, faith-filled environment for all students, employees, volunteers and patrons in which Christ-like behaviors are ever present.
  • This Catholic Environment will be free from harassment, intimidation or bullying.
  • If any such behaviors do occur, all community members will be able to tell and know that the incident is unacceptable and will be dealt with effectively in a Christ-like way.
  • For this goal to be obtained all students, faculty, staff and parents must accept responsibility for the atmosphere at St. Joseph.
  • The focus of the discipline system is to evaluate behavior and then work with the student to change the behavior so that it is appropriate and does not interfere with the teaching-learning environment.
  • The goal is not to judge the student, but rather to help him/her develop appropriate behavior that fosters their development as individuals in God's kingdom.
  • The attainment of this goal requires a cooperative effort among students, staff and parents.
