- St. Joseph Catholic School offers a well-balanced, challenging academic program that follows curriculum standards set by the State of Arizona and the Diocese of Tucson. In addition to a rigorous academic program, children are taught the tenets of the Catholic Faith, an appreciation for the fine arts, and an understanding of technology as a tool for enhanced learning. Daily religion classes, attendance at weekly mass, and school wide prayer provide a strong spiritual framework. The school has a computer lab and smart boards in every classroom. Our technology director works with teachers to integrate technology throughout our curriculum. Homework reinforces material taught in class and helps our students learn responsibility and self-discipline, keys to lifelong learning.
