Preparing Students for Life Through Exceptional Catholic Education

We believe there is no better investment in your child’s future than a St. Joseph’s education. By investing early in the intellectual, creative, and spiritual growth of your child, you prepare them for a life of confidence, compassion, innovation, and leadership.

"I want you to know that my time at St. Joe’s was priceless. Every day I spent there I was able to experience God, family, and friends. At St. Joe’s I found my voice. I learned to stand up for what is right, to stay true to who I am, and to always believe that there is good in the world."

"We love that our children have frequent access to the Sacraments and that faith is not taught solely in Religion class, but in each classroom, sports team, hallway, and encounter with faculty. Our children not only learn about their faith, they see it skillfully and vibrantly portrayed in their teachers. St Joe’s is our single best investment in our children’s future."
