School Notes

Our Philosophy
Rooted in the Dominican spirit and a tradition of excellence, St. Joseph School recognizes students as learners, parents as primary educators, and teachers as facilitators of learning.  The school is committed to instilling Gospel values and providing a nurturing, faith-filled environment that:
  • strengthens the individual`s self-worth
  • appreciates the diversity of all peoples
  • encourages caring interdependence, developing responsible members of  family, parish, and local /global communities
Dedicated to fostering each student`s relationship with God and others, the educational program is directed toward the growth of the whole child: spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, and psychological.

Our Mission
St. Joseph School, affiliated with the Dominican Sisters and an integral part of St. Joseph Parish in historic Mission San Jose, is dedicated to providing a strong Catholic religious formation and an excellent academic education for transitional kindergarten through 8th grade students.  Partners in this endeavor, students, parents, educators, and parish community strive to live Christ`s message, empowering service-minded future leaders for Church and community.

Diocese of Oakland Mission Statement
