St. Joseph School is affiliated with the Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose and an integral part of St. Joseph Parish in historic Mission San Jose. The school is dedicated to providing a strong Catholic religious formation and a quality academic education for students in Kindergarten through the Eighth Grade. Partners in this endeavor, students, parents, educators, and parish community strive to live Christ's message, empowering service-minded future leaders for Church and community.
St. Joseph's overarching goal is to provide a quality educational environment whereby students become successful, lifelong learners. The educational program is directed toward the growth of the whole person -- the spiritual, intellectual, social, psychological, and physical being. The school believes that parents are the primary educators and should be extensively involved in the school program.
