About Us

Principal's Letter


Greetings from Saint Joseph School,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Saint Joseph Catholic School’s website. The teachers and staff join me in saying we are committed to educating the whole child in an environment which reflects the values and traditions of the Catholic Church.  We strive to foster each student’s spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, and physical growth. In accordance with each student's gifts and abilities, we strive to provide the student with the skills needed to become the next generation of Catholic leaders.

Our school has a strong history of academic excellence integrated with the teachings of our Catholic faith.   We look forward to having your child take part in the many educational opportunities that are offered at our school. Our teachers and staff are here to help all students get the most out of their time at Saint Joseph Catholic School, as we live out our vision of: Inspiring Minds, Building Character and Living Faith.

As Saint Joseph Catholic School turns sixty, the 2014-2015 school year promises to be an exciting and rewarding time.  Our theme this year is Find JOY in the Journey – “The Joy of the Lord is your strengthNehemiah 8:10.  The acronym JOY represents Jesus, Others and Yourself.  We need Jesus, we need others, and we need to trust ourselves in successfully facing any challenges that arise during our journey.  This year we will give special attention to the importance of actions that reflect our faith. Our goal is to help all students understand that our relationship with God involves everything we do at Saint Joseph, from classroom behaviors to attitudes exhibited when no one is watching. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me or my staff at 803-254-6736 for more information.
