Our Academics


3K Program (2 mornings per week – each Thursday and Friday from 8:00 am – 11:00 am)
4K Program (3 full days/week – Monday through Wednesday from 8:00 am – 3:07 pm)

Our preschool programs provide a great start for your child! Our teachers focus on creating a warm and supportive faith-based environment for students to learn. We believe parents are the first and most important teacher and we value parents as a partner in the education of their child. Faith is also an important component of our curriculum and lessons built on our Catholic faith are written into our curriculum and children participate in singing and worship.

Friends, laughter, and smiles are all part of our days together at St. Joseph’s kindergarten classroom. Students are challenged daily to go above and beyond in both their Faith and academics. In our classroom, we focus on learning through exploration, hands-on activities, and group work. The students work in teams, alone, at tables, on the carpet collaborating or searching for answers around them. The students are learning to be friends, work with others, solve problems.


You will be amazed at how much your child will not only grow physically, but emotionally, mentally, and scholastically. All students in Elementary are offered recess twice daily as well as Physical Education classes four days of the week. Art is offered in the classroom one day per week.

Middle School

In their first year of middle school, students are adjusting to newfound independence and responsibility. Our fifth-grade faculty allows them to explore their academic and social environment, but new boundaries are introduced in our effort to develop good students and good citizens for the future. Students also participate in band, choir, and many other extracurricular activities.
