For over a century, St. Joseph the Worker School continues its long-standing tradition of providing the highest quality Catholic education to its students. Catholic schools help students develop a strong foundation by teaching morals, virtues, and values that support the beliefs of the Catholic Church. Our students represent Christian behavior in the greater community by daily living the example of Jesus Christ.

St. Joseph the Worker is a kindergarten through sixth-grade Catholic school, and our students are able to practice their faith in a safe and loving academic environment. We offer small class sizes and affordable tuition due to the generous support of our parish community. The well-rounded curriculum offers rigorous academics, service learning, technology and the arts. High academic achievement by our students is evidenced by their success once they move to the public school for the remainder of their middle school and high school education. Many of our students continue their education to achieve degrees from higher learning institutions.

We recognize the significant trends impacting our lives which challenge educational values as well as our definition of what it means to be Catholic. With ever-changing societal values, the availability of a solid, affordable Catholic education is more important than ever. We must continue to provide our young students with the tools and direction they need to grow amid these challenges.

The best way to learn about our school is to experience our offerings firsthand. Schedule a time to tour our school and see what makes St. Joseph the Worker Catholic School special!
