Our Mission

Our Mission
Our Mission is to inspire and empower all learners to become the person God intends by integrating Catholic virtues, prayers, and service with 21st Century Learning.

Our Philosophy
The community of St. Joseph Catholic STEM School believes in integrating Catholic virtues, prayers, liturgies, celebrations, and service with our Core Values of Living Faith, Embracing Family, Inspiring Learning, Celebrating Service and Achieving Excellence. Combined with 21st Century Learning strategies & philosophies, Christian behavior expectations, and state-aligned curriculum standards, we prepare our students to be lifelong learners and contributing members in their families, churches, and communities. Our students are supported on their journey to become the person God made them to be by the prayerful communication and collaboration of our pastor, our staff, our parents, our parish, our Archdiocese, and the communal Catholic church.
