St Joseph School is a Catholic learning community for Preschool through Grade 8 that is an integrated part of the larger faith based St. Joseph Parish community. We are dedicated to proclaiming the love of God as found in the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Our school seeks to provide a quality Catholic education that meets the academic and spiritual needs of our students. All children will learn and grow in a faith-based environment that is nurturing, safe, and encouraging.
Our school environment fosters love of God, respect for oneself and others, compassion, justice, and service. Learning experiences challenge students to grow in understanding and appreciating their human worth, to take responsibility for their own learning and development, and to care for the world in which they live. The school encourages students to develop responsibility towards themselves and others and fosters respect for all persons and the world around us. Guidance in making good choices based on Catholic values is integrated throughout the curriculum.
“The non-public schools of the Diocese of Fall River admit students of any race, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the schools…and do not discriminate on the basis of race, national and ethnic origin in administration of their educational policies, scholarship and loan programs, as well as athletic and other school-administered programs.”
Saint Joseph School encourages a school climate of respect, inclusion, and equality.
