“Without confidence and love, there can be no true education.” – St. John Bosco
At St. Joseph’s Middle School, we believe that education should develop the whole child – mind, heart, and soul. Our curriculum is designed with high standards and expectations for every child, and a wide variety of co-curricular opportunities to promote an environment of exploration and discovery.
Our middle school thrives in a single-gender classroom environment and enjoys a 12:1 student/faculty ratio. Firmly rooted in the teachings of the Catholic Church, the St. Joseph’s middle school experience is centered on Jesus Christ, our Master Teacher.
Why Middle School Matters
Middle school establishes the framework of success for young men and women. Students begin to understand the importance of education and its role in their path to achievement, as they start to visualize their future and take responsibility for their learning. Choosing a middle school that meets these needs and nurtures your child at this critical developmental time is crucial.
Sixth Grade Academy
By starting your St. Joseph’s experience in our Sixth Grade Academy, your child will be given the tools they need to transition smoothly into their middle school years. In their own dedicated space and surrounded by caring, deeply invested teachers, your student will be known and nurtured in their new school!
