St. Joseph Elementary School
Tel: (989) 593-3400
St. Joseph School is part of a Catholic Parish Community, made up of individuals striving for the common goal to be "grounded in the values and truths of our Catholic faith".
We are concerned with modeling the values and principles of Jesus and instilling these in our children.
In partnership with parents, who are the primary educators, we believe that given the right conditions, all children can learn.
St. Joseph school, staff, parents, and parish family are committed to teaching quality, Christ-centered Catholic beliefs and values.
Our uniqueness is displayed in our staff dedication, parental involvement, and community pride which make St.
Joseph a leader in academic excellence, social integration and appreciation of each individual as a Child of God.
Our philosophy of education is based on the belief that all truth is from God, the divine Creator.
We are committed to teaching students that God's truth is the integrating factor for all of life.
Therefore, our educational curriculum encompasses religious and general academic studies.
