The mission of St. Joseph School is to build a Catholic environment that promotes excellence in learning and development of the whole person through the Gospel message.
Together with parents, staff, and our parish community, we seek to form leaders by guiding our students to their highest levels of spiritual and academic potential.
We offer an environment which encompasses a quality academic curriculum, mutual respect, intellectual curiosity, and service to others.
St. Joseph School is committed to offering its students the opportunity to develop their individual talents and abilities.
We provide quality academic instruction designed to challenge each student to self-direction.
In the academic sphere, students are guided to develop basic skills and to acquire knowledge that is the foundation for further learning in the academic, practical, and technological world in which we live.
They are helped to grow toward learning to think morally, rationally, logically, and critically.
