I can not say enough good things about this school or its staff. Most importantly, when there is an issue, there is always an available line of communication. If I am not informed on what my children are doing or supposed to be doing, it is due to a lapse on my part. Furthermore, the quality and depth of education has given my children a huge advantage for their futures. This is a school where their is a culture of support to encourage each child to achieve their potential. This school is a community of its staff, students and parents... even during these difficult times.

We love this school. Prior to starting PreK, I was trying to get our daughter to count by 2s or 5s because I read on the internet that this was an age appropriate behavior. She constantly assured me that I cannot jump directly from 2 to 4, but must include 1 and 3 in the process. A few weeks into the school year, even though she's 100% online, she was counting by 2s and 10s. She still avoids 5s because she says counting by 10s is faster. She had also begun reading some basic books, but largely just memorized the storylines and try as I might I couldn't get her to focus on individual words, letters, sounds or to try to recognize individual words independent of the sentences. Roughly a month into the year, she picked up a Dr. Seuss book and read, "Take it slowly, this book is ... " and the word dangerous evaded her. I was amazed how fast Ms. Montoya was able to improve her math and reading skills. She also refused repeatedly to do much Spanish at home, but her St. Joseph Spanish Teacher Ms Moreno was able to get her to move smartly forward in that skill as well. The school leadership is amazing and has been exceptional during the COVID chaos. We couldn't happier with this school.

I love this school! We are ever improving and growing. The teachers are dedicated and the students are exposed to a healthy work/life/faith balance.

We are parishioners at St Hugh Church in Greenbelt. When the St Hugh School was closed and St Joseph became our regional school it was clear that was the place for our son. We are so glad our son is attending St Joseph's Regional Catholic School. The staff is amazing and the Home and School Association and the parish have done amazing things. My son started here in 1st grade and is now in 4th grade. Since he fist attended, ALL CLASSROOMS have had air conditioning installed, all of the lighting has been replaced with state of the art LED energy saving lighting, work has been done on the roof and parking lot. There is always something going on to improve the school. Along with the improvements to the facilities, I love the staff. They are energetic, they motivate the kids, and the kids respond. Help is provided for students who struggle, and challenges are provided for those who are excelling. There are several other Catholic schools in the area where we could have sent our son to, but St. Joseph is the place for us. We love it!

Choosing a private school is a process with many parts to it. It also takes 18-24 months to complete. This collection of articles deals with the first part of the process in which you begin to look at private schools and what they offer.
A parent and I chat about finding the best school for her daughter. While the parent may be fictitious, her questions are quite typical of the kind of questions and concerns parents have when thinking about sending their children to private school.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
