St. Joseph School serves over 425 children in pre-school through grade 8. Each day, students experience academic excellence and practice values of the Catholic faith that help to build confidence and spirituality. Students develop foundational skills that support a desire to learn more about the world. More importantly, children at St. Joseph learn how to serve others.

The dedicated staff is like a family. This unique quality results in effective collaboration, encouragement for professional growth, and a natural desire to help every child in the school reach his or her potential. Teachers and parents work as a team to maximize the support for the children.

St. Joseph offers many opportunities for each child to learn and grow academically including electives for the older students, an award-winning Book of the Month program, and Chromebook technology. St. Joseph focuses on the whole child by providing a strong fine arts program that includes theater, children's choir, and visual arts at every grade level. Children are also supported by a guidance counselor, engaged administrators, and a low student-teacher ratio.

One of the most unique characteristics of St. Joseph School is that it is filled with children of alumni. What makes people want their children to attend St. Joseph? It’s not just academic excellence and a well-rounded curriculum. It is the safe, welcoming environment where people can connect to one another and work towards a common goal of helping children, the future, to be the best they can be.
