Saint Joseph Catholic School’s elementary program runs from kindergarten through the fifth grade. It is our primary goal to lay a strong foundation for your child so he/she is successful in his/her educational endeavors. We accomplish this goal by using the Catholic faith as our basis, along with a rigorous academic program. Our program includes both traditional classroom instruction as well as 21st-Century learning which includes interactive projector systems, clickers, Chromebooks, and more. Our curriculum includes religion, reading/literature, writing, math, social studies and science. We also offer Spanish, music, physical education, media/technology, and art.
Students in grades 6th-8th rotate between classrooms for different subjects and follow a rigorous curriculum in religion, language arts/literature, mathematics, social studies, science, art, physical education and Spanish. Electives in choir, band, technology, student leadership, and yearbook production are also offered.
The philosophy emphasizes that learning is integrated, experiential, values-based and a foundation for continued and life-long learning. Learning is designed to promote the spiritual, intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth of each unique child. Students are encouraged to be model citizens for the entire school and accept many leadership roles. There is a strong focus on 21st-Century learning and preparation for high school.
