Welcome and thank you for your interest in St. Joseph the Carpenter School.  We provide a safe and loving Christian environment where we encourage our students to meet academic challenges with enthusiasm and to develop a deeper awareness of their spiritual life and their growing relationship with God.  Our dedicated faculty, along with our excellent academic standards and our technology rich classrooms, are indicative of our commitment to enabling all students to meet their full potential.

We invite you to learn more about the outstanding academic, extracurricular and spiritual development opportunities that we offer.  To truly appreciate the St. Joseph School experience, we recommend scheduling a personal tour.  We also suggest arranging a classroom visit to enable your child to be a St. Joseph School student for a day.  Our faculty and students are always happy to share their experiences with you.
