"Let the children come to me; do not prevent them,
for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these." ~Mark 10:14
Welcome to St. Joseph Catholic School. We extend an invitation for you to visit our school to see the wonderful things our children are doing. This webpage is full of information about our school, student life, enrollment, and resources for parents and children.
Our teachers and parents are dedicated to making sure our students get the best education possible. Our teachers work tirelessly to ensure the curricular programs being used continue to build strong academic skills in students. The class structure of St. Joseph Catholic School has small student-teacher ratios which allows for every child to receive personal and individualized encouragement for intellectual growth. Our parents make great sacrifices to send their children to St. Joseph Catholic School to receive an accredited excellent academic education and where students excel in nationally norm-based assessment tests in virtually all age-appropriate categories. In addition to academic learning, our students also learn important lessons about the value of life, love of neighbor through service, and love of Jesus Christ through daily prayer.
Our young people are encouraged every day to use their new knowledge wisely so that their lives may be a reflection of Jesus' love. We believe that the spirit of Jesus is in every classroom and that the spirit of St. Joseph walks the halls. Because we pray daily, our faith increases. For many parents, there is no other educational alternative that provides their children with a true Catholic faith-based education than St. Joseph’s. Thank you for believing in the value of a Catholic education by bringing your children to us.
A Welcome Message from Our Pastor
Our St. Joseph Parish is so very blessed to have a school of its own and to be able to provide for its successful mission of educating our precious children. Our children are the hope for the future of the Catholic Church and we must fulfill our duty as Catholics to provide the children the opportunity for a fulltime Catholic education.
We give thanks and blessings to those of you who are part of our St. Joseph School family and by entrusting your children's education to us. We pray you will continue with us as we grow our school.
I firmly believe in the importance, mission and philosophy of Catholic Education, the education and safety of all students, compassion toward others and the uniqueness and integrity of each human being. I have a passion for working with God's beloved children, their families, other educations and the community and have dedicated my life to this.
As parents, you want the best for your children. It is because you wish them success in all of life's challenges that a Catholic school is the right choice. Our Catholic school provides an education program based on religious beliefs and values, enabling your children to grow in their undersanding of themsleves, their relationships with God and with others.
Our school promotes the education of your children to their potential and their teachers respect and encourage real learning experiences. We offer a community environment in which your children can discuss and live out the values upon which their education is based. Here at St. Joseph's, our students learn to question, to establish confidence in their own good choices in life and to experience the sense of accomplishment stemming from individual achievement and responsibility.
We always extend a blessed welcome to those who are considering our school for their children, which is a place where they can excel spiritually, academically and socially---a place where they are respected and loved with the presence of Jesus Christ in each classroom. We invite you to come and see that our "Saints are under Construction!"
Whichever school you choose for your children, remember that at St. Joseph Catholic School you can be assured that your child will receive a strong academic education in an environment structured to have a lasting value. Together with God's help, we will continue to make an already great school an even greater school.
May God bless you and yours always!
Sincerely in Christ,
Very Rev. Fr. Anthony McLaughlin, JCD
