What Life Is Like For St. Joe’s Students

St. Joe’s School is where families are involved in their children’s education. Parents know their children are cared for and are recognized for the unique person they are. Teachers continually partner with caregivers in their child’s upbringing, ensuring the continued success of happy and healthy children we’ve taught for so many years.  With a focus on building meaningful relationships, the high expectations for academic, social, emotional, and spiritual growth are endless.

Hear From Our St. Joe’s Parents

When our family first came to St. Joe’s School over six years ago, it was due to unforeseen circumstances. We were in the process of going through a divorce and relocated to be closer to my family. St. Joe’s School became our extended family. They swooped in and welcomed us with open arms, which was much needed at the time. Through the years, the staff at St. Joe’s School demonstrated not only academic excellence, but also compassion, kindness, and a helping hand.  As a single parent, this was greatly appreciated. I can honestly say, that without St. Joe’s School, my girls and I would not be where we are at today.

Robin ★★★★★

Our daughter’s teacher is a shining role model for her students in loving her faith and vividly exemplifying many fruits of the Holy Spirit: charity, joy, patience, faithfulness, modesty, purity, gentleness, etc. It is obvious that she strives to live out her faith in all aspects of her life. I couldn’t ask for a better teacher and mentor for my pre-teen daughter.

Dorothy ★★★★★

We send our children to St. Joseph’s for lots of different reasons: great academics, small class sizes, and great teachers. But our children are at St. Joe’s because they are allowed to freely talk about God; they are encouraged to be their best; they are taught how to respect others and how much respect is expected throughout the school for people and property. I wouldn’t trade my children’s education for anything. I can’t imagine sending my kids to another school, because they wouldn’t get everything that they get at St. Joseph’s.
