"The learned will shine as brightly as the vault of heaven and those who have instructed many in virtue will shine like the stars for all eternity"(from the Office of Doctors of the Church).
Welcome to St. Joseph School! Education traditionally meant "education in virtue." St. Joseph School is dedicated to helping families form children in heart, mind, and soul. Please plan to visit our school and experience it for yourself.
Father Joseph Tito
Welcome to Saint Joseph School which is a very special school with a wonderful pastor, great staff, students and parents! We are a school with traditional Catholic values and teachings which are imparted to our students as they journey through life coupled with an academically challenging curriculum Our teachers are not only professionally prepared, but they are also on a mission to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ in the daily lives of our students. The bond that our staff, students and parents share is what makes our school such an amazing family!
Last year was a challenging year for everyone, but we were able to meet these challenges with the support of our wonderful families. We were able to show our young students that being creative, versatile, and optimistic as well as having a deep faith in God, we were able to accomplish anything when families and staff work together.
Saint Joseph School has been open since 1874 and has evolved since it opened its doors. Changes include where the school was originally located to the present building which was dedicated in 1950 to the many strides in technology as well as incorporating two world languages into our curriculum. Many changes have taken place down through the years, but one thing that has not changed is our is its dedication to our students, with a dedicated staff by providing a safe environment in a traditional Catholic school. We hope that you enjoy viewing our web site.
God bless you!
