Serving the Upstate of South Carolina within the immediate Greater Anderson Tri-County Area, at St. Joseph Catholic School (SJCS) we follow the Catholic Diocese of Charleston curriculum standards, which meet or exceed National and State standards, as well as strives for academic excellence integrated with the faith and tradition of the Catholic Church.
We offer a traditional, classical education based on direct instruction, independent student inquiry, historical reenactment, and cooperative group. Teachers are trained in differentiated learning techniques and offer modifications and accommodations to ensure every student's success.
Each week, each student receives additional instruction in Music, Art, Spanish, Library, Physical Education, and Computer Technology.
Our schoolwide Saxon Math curriculum uses the spiral approach to learning by introducing a new concept and reviewing previously introduced concepts on a daily basis. Manipulatives are used to introduce advanced concepts of Algebra and Geometry to even our youngest students.
