Why St. Joseph Catholic School?
In keeping with the tradition of Catholic education, our school is considered a mission of our parish community and an effort is made to keep tuition and costs to a minimum. We, as a school and church community, truly believe in the value of providing children with a faith-based education where children are taught to be good citizens, not just good students. This has been our focus for the past 44 years, and we will continue to focus on this very important objective in the years to come.
At St. Joseph Catholic School, our children are taught love and respect for self and others, compassion and responsibility, dignity and integrity, peace and justice. These values are not only taught in daily religion classes, but they are woven through every class and each day's activities. This integration of values and academics enables each student to grow as a whole person. The choices our students make throughout their lives will be affected by the values they are taught at our school.
The Philosophy of the Catholic School in the Diocese of Charleston is based on the Christian Social Principles of the gospel message to love and to respect the rights of all people.
It is the policy, therefore, of this member school, SJCS, to ensure that no student, applicant, or employee be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, sex, ethnicity and/or national origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarships, athletics, or other school administered programs.
