Our goal at Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School, founded in 1958, is to enlighten the whole child. We strive to graduate educated children participating in a compassionate and kind world. We believe in transformation through collaboration, critical thinking, and 21st century skills fostered by innovative, inclusive S-STEAM academics, in a nurturing, Christian environment.

We are a loving, fun, and family-oriented private school. We provide the academic and spiritual foundation in preparation for your child’s first choice for his/her High School years on the path to becoming life-long learners.

Episcopal Identity

Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School was created to be a community that honors, celebrates, and worships God as the center of life. The school was created to be a model of God’s love and grace and serves God in Christ in all persons, regardless of origin, background, ability, or religion. It strives for justice and peace among all persons and respects the dignity of every human being. The means by which we live out our Epicopal identity are:

  • Intentionally living out the faith by example
  • Situating the heart and soul of the school in Chapel
  • Providing religious education
  • Requiring community outreach and service

We exist not only to serve the community with quality education but to witness the Christian principles of faith, hope, and love. Thus, the curriculum, programs, activities, and policies are developed and implemented to guide and nourish children into becoming healthy, confident, and responsible adults.
