Mission and Philosophy

St. Joseph High School Mission
St. Joseph High School, inspired by the life of Saint Joseph, protector and nurturer of the Holy Family, is a Catholic educational community that cultivates a peaceful, challenging and loving atmosphere fostering spiritual growth and academic excellence for our school family.

School Philosophy and Beliefs
"You shall love the Lord, with all your heart, with all your being, with all of your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself." - Luke 10:27

We believe the most important outcome for each member of the St. Joseph High School community is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, which results in the continuous formation of the whole person, the development of God-given talents, and a commitment to a lifetime of service.  Together, students, parents and faculty build a community, and as one, we serve God.

We believe that the qualities our patron Saint Joseph embodied—guardian of Jesus, devoted husband to Mary, model worker, faithful servant, righteous man—inspire the St. Joseph High School family to be a community of faith, hope, and love.

We believe in academic excellence and intellectual challenge for all students. 

We believe that it is the responsibility of the entire educating community—parents, faculty, students and collaborators—to prepare our students for life and to be active in the improvement of society according to Gospel principles. 

We believe that by embracing a diverse population of individual differences and abilities, we create an environment in which the students can prepare for the immediate challenges of college, the workplace, and a life-long commitment to faith, education, leadership and service in a multicultural society.

We believe in the educational principles and learning experiences that extend beyond the classroom in order to foster the spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional, and physical growth of the whole person to his or her fullest potential.
