General School Mission

"St. Joseph School is devoted to fostering an environment that enhances the spiritual growth of our children within a nurturing, Catholic community. In partnership with parents, we are dedicated to providing a strong academic foundation that recognizes the individual learning style of each child. We encourage students to achieve their own potential, see God in others and be of service to the community.
Our mission is to teach the children an awareness of themselves as being loved by a loving God, and that we are placed on this earth to love God and others.
To Provide a nurturing and Catholic environment for learning, where children are stimulated and encouraged to realize God's gifts of imagination and creativity.
To provide a child-centered approach to learning that gives each child the satisfaction of success and accomplishment at appropriate developmental levels.
To build a supportive network for parenting in the Catholic tradition.
To strengthen the commitment to Catholic educational opportunities, both in faith formation classes and the Catholic school system.
To bridge the Catholic experience from the home community to the parish community.
To provide quality education at a realistic price for families.
To offer scholarships to families in financial need.
We believe a child learns by doing and discovering, wondering, observing, guessing, innovating, creating, feeling and experiencing. Our hope for each child is that she or he will leave St. Joseph Preschool each day excited about learning and enjoying the feeling of being a child of God."
