Library skills, computer instruction, music, art, and physical education are part of our curriculum. Spanish will be taught in K5-8th.

Your child will receive excellence in education and spiritual development within the framework of the tradition of the Catholic Church. Unlike public education, St. Joseph Catholic School offers a moral code, a value system, and faith formation as an integral part of each child's education, thus addressing the whole child.
