We love St. Joseph's School! We have 5 sons that have been enrolled over the last 10 years. 3 currently are enrolled. We love the teachers, the staff and other students. Each of the teachers (we've had them all...) Care for each and every student and help each one reach their full potential.

We are a proud school family that has attended SJY for over 10 years with multiple children. Each has received a strong educational foundation surrounded by a faculty and staff who truly cares. The school community is welcoming and supportive. We have connected with so many good families and our kids have found wonderful, lasting friendships. SJY provided a well-rounded experience for their elementary years. They are prepared for the next steps in their schooling, but most importantly, for living a Christ-centered life!

I am so glad we chose St. Joseph School for our child. Faculty is caring and compassionate and truly want to make a difference in the students' lives. In addition to a Christ-centered education, individualized learning strategies that challenge each child at their specific learning level, a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, and a community where each child is valued (pre-K through grade 6) make it a choice any family can feel secure and proud to make for their child or children.
