St. Joseph Christian School is a interdenominational, private Christian school strategically located to serve pre-k through twelfth grade students from the Northwest Missouri/Northeast Kansas area.
The school's purpose is to partner with Christian parents in their God-given responsibility to encourage, discipline, and instruct their children.
Based in a biblical worldview, instruction at SJCS builds in core curricula at the lower levels and expands to provide college-preparatory course-work at the upper levels.
