Since its founding in 1894, St. Joseph Catholic School has grown from a one-room school house to a comprehensive school system that includes three campuses: The Early Learning Center (ELC) provides infant care through PreK3, the Elementary Campus educates students from grades PreK4 – 5th grade, and the Secondary Campus encompasses the Junior High and the High School.
Although the school has changed over the past 120+ years, one thing has remained the same—our commitment to providing quality, Catholic education—spirit, mind, and body. We take very seriously our mission to form the whole person in the image and likeness of Christ.
St. Joseph uses a three-pronged approach to forming and educating students: faith formation, rigorous curriculum, and extracurricular activities.
Our solid, faith-based education is open to children of all religions. Religious instruction is provided daily, and students from grades PreK-12 attend Mass twice weekly. But sharing and exploring our Christian faith is not confined to the chapel or the theology classroom. Seeing God’s hand in all areas of study, be it science, social studies, math, or music, is part of the daily experience for teachers and students at St. Joseph School.
The education at St. Joseph Catholic School provides a solid foundation and springboard to the future. At the secondary level, students are required to take at least two years of Latin, and they have the opportunity to earn college credit through the Dual Credit program with Blinn College. St. Joseph High School graduates have been accepted to some of the most prestigious and highly ranked colleges and universities in the country.
In addition, students and their parents are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities that promote and encourage the values of respect, responsibility, and service. The student service program, a requirement for graduation, further instills the value of student leadership and service.
When you choose St. Joseph Catholic School for your family, you will discover a lively, family-oriented environment where education, faith formation, and the individual needs of each child is valued. Give us a call to arrange your personal tour.
