St. Joseph’s Catholic School seeks to provide all children with an opportunity to develop spiritually, academically, morally, emotionally, and physically, in an environment of Christ-centered attitudes and values. Staff and parents are committed to preparing students to take their place in their own community and the world at-large by fostering a love for lifelong learning and a responsibility to others.

School-wide Learning Expectations

The School-wide Learning Expectations (SLE’s) are an integral part of defining the school’s purpose. The five expectations are Spiritual, Academic, Citizenship, Social, and Physical. At St. Joseph’s it is the belief that a well-rounded person should possess all five of the traits outlined in the SLE’s. The SLE’s relate to St. Joe’s purpose of creating a student who can be a productive member of the Church and society. We believe that helping students to strive for achievement in all SLE areas will further their success beyond St. Joe’s.
