St. Joseph Catholic School-- educating the mind, expanding the heart
St. Joseph Catholic School was established in 1953, and is a vital part of the parish community. Located in Marietta, GA, St. Joseph Catholic School has been recognized twice as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. Focusing on the child, the mission of St. Joseph Catholic School is to educate each student by embracing our faith and upholding academic excellence within a Catholic community devoted to developing the whole child. Students receive instruction in our Catholic faith, and learn to develop a personal relationship with our God. Additionally, through service to others, students come to know and value the importance of providing help to their fellow man. The challenging academic curriculum at Saint Joseph Catholic School is key to continued student success. Decisions for instructional methods, programs, and interventions begin with a review of student assessment data. Results of assessment data are analyzed and instructional decisions are driven by this analysis. Teachers and staff are the final key in instating strong, foundational teaching practices within the classroom. Through regular communication with parents and the local community, our students are provided with additional opportunities to excel in our wonderful school environment. Our Catholic community is strong at St. Joseph Catholic School. Whether celebrating at our weekly Mass, or having fun at the annual Block Party, the stakeholders of the school come together in support of one thing - the students. St. Joseph Catholic School - we are a school which embraces its Catholic identity and continually strives for academic excellence.
