“Saint Joseph Catholic School has a BIG focus on academics.
We set the bar high and give all students the support they need
to be successful. Our test scores prove it!”
Mrs. Marianne Aiken, Middle School/Science
Each February, students in grades 2-8 take the Iowa Test of Basic Skills. These standardized tests, like the Colorado Student Assessment Program (CSAP) used in public schools, are used to measure student learning and achievement as well as improve teaching. As the graphs below indicate, Saint Joseph Catholic School provides an exceptional learning experience. When measured against Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools and the national norm, our students are consistently top performers. While these test scores are impressive, they fail to tell the whole story of the benefits of a Catholic education.
“A Catholic education is a complete education,” said Dr. Chuck Hubbeling, principal. “Students here are in a high achieving academic culture aimed at the pursuit of truth. We promote growth in virtue and provide an environment in which students are enabled to build and deepen their relationship with God. Not only are students getting an outstanding education in all subject areas, they are encountering the living God daily and being exposed to morals, values, and principles that will serve them well the rest of their lives. Our goal and greatest joy is to transform children into authentic disciples of Jesus Christ.”
