Be it known to all who enter here that CHRIST is the reason for this school. He is the unseen but ever present teacher in its classes. He is the model of its faculty and the inspiration for its students. It is our goal to lead our students to Christ, college, and careers as productive faith-filled citizens.


The philosophy of St. Joseph School is built upon the truth that God created man and man must tend toward God. Therefore, St. Joseph School is committed to the formation of the human person with respect to his final goal – God--as he fulfills his obligation to develop the intellectual and physical skills needed for the challenges of life. St. Joseph School seeks to develop adults of faith and intelligence, persons who have the courage to seek out the truth and follow it, persons who see God and respect Him in themselves and their fellow men. Ultimately, the goal is that of true education; that is, to develop the whole person---soul, mind, and body. St. Joseph School strives not to impose knowledge, virtue, and service but rather to form the total person who freely chooses to adopt these principles for correct living.
