Catholic Identity

St. Joseph Catholic School is grounded on 3 Core Beliefs:

God is in all things.

We are called to offer our best to God.

Every moment matters.

GIAT 18x24

We believe:

  • In God who is present in everyday reality and desires a personal relationship with each individual
  • In the inherent goodness of every person

We believe that a quality, comprehensive Catholic education fosters:

  • The development of the total person, attending to the moral, spiritual, social, intellectual, aesthetic, and physical dimensions
  • A personal relationship with God through experiences of faith, prayer, sacraments, and Marian life
  • Academic excellence
  • Critical thinking and decision-making skills based on Gospel values
  • Education to communication enabling the students to live within a global society
  • Opportunities for developing skills and interests through co-curricular and extracurricular activities

We believe that forming “active Christians and contributing citizens” necessitates:

  • Assisting parents in the development of their child’s Christian faith
  • Helping the young to discover and freely live God’s plan in their lives
  • Educating to Catholic Social Teachings applied to current issues
  • Helping the young person in the development of the sense of responsible membership in the Church and in society
  • Involving young people in the missionary evangelization of the Church

We believe that Salesian family spirit includes:

  • A family atmosphere in which everyone is welcomed, accepted, and respected
  • The educator as a loving presence among the students
  • Active parental involvement as a necessary part of the educational process
  • Shared responsibility and cordial collaboration among administration, faculty, staff and community of faith
