Why Saint Joseph?

K-8th Grade

Our curriculum is built on three pillars:


“Train the young in the way they should go; even when old, they will not swerve from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)


Since 1926, Saint Joseph Catholic School has been a vibrant community of academic, social and spiritual excellence. Students are challenged with rigorous academics on a daily basis while forming their character and faith for lives of virtue.

One of 37 schools in the Archdiocese of Denver, Saint Joseph Catholic School is committed to teaching students the enduring truths of the Catholic faith, which Christ himself promised would last until the end of time. The Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the lives of the saints, the treasury of Catholic prayers, and the rich heritage of Catholic scholarship nurture students in lifelong learning.

This proven, content-rich curriculum in the subjects of language arts, history and geography, visual arts, music, math, science, and physical education gives students lifelong skills. This clear and specified sequence lays the groundwork for future success.
