School Notes

  • St. Joseph School is a Catholic school founded in 1890 to educate the students of Danville and the surrounding communities.
  • Because our children are the future of our Church and of our community, the school program is designed to make a distinct contribution to that future by helping children in grades 1 through 8 develop their individual potential academically, spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally.
  • St. Joseph School cultivates a strong faith in God, stresses positive values, and encourages its students to become involved Christians.
  • We believe that all students will be instilled with a love of their faith through a traditional Christian centered education; that no education is complete unless it includes principles of the Gospels; and that because there is more to education than schooling, the parents have the primary responsibility for the education of their children.
  • The school depends on them to collaborate in various ways with what the school is trying to do.
