Our faculty, staff, priests, parish, and community instill in students the value of service to others in keeping with our motto, Enter to Learn, Leave to Serve. In the Franciscan spirit, students regularly reach out to various communities to share God’s love and mercy. We are a community of faith-filled people dedicated to providing a Catholic education to the children of St. Joseph Parish and neighboring communities. Service and compassion hold the school community together. As our students enter to learn in our school community, they leave to serve their own communities and the Kingdom of God.
