St. Joseph School

The mission of St. Joseph School is to prepare our children to become Christian models of leadership who will service family, community and church.
While integrating the spiritual dimensions of our Catholic faith with academic guidelines set forth by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, St.
Joseph School calls for nurturing of Christian values, learning, personal development, and the reverence for all peoples as unique creations of God.
With this sound foundation, students are encouraged to strive for and reach their maximum capabilities as educated, Christian witnesses of Jesus Christ.
The purpose of Saint Joseph School is two – fold: religious and academic.
Saint Joseph School believes its religious nature is firmly rooted in the educational mission of the church.
Therefore, we are committed to faithfully transmitting the message of salvation as taught by Jesus Christ and contained in the Gospel.
Saint Joseph School provides a balanced curriculum that identifies the education of the whole person as its primary goal.
