I am a Class of 1948 graduate of St. Joseph Grade School and attribute the education I received to my success in the commercial and aerospace world. The emphasis on English, math and spelling enabled me to write and/or edit technical papers published in professional journals later in life. Thank you....

Quality in offering Faith Formation, love of God, high academic standards, family focus, succeed with dignity, weekly worship, active participation in IESA events. Many graduates continue to excel in high school. Strong angel buddy system among the students and a very invested Parent Club and Athletic Board. Parents are extremely dedicated to raising funds to help the parish with the cost of the school.
