Welcome to St. Joseph High School, the "Home of the Knights!" We want to take this time to thank you for your interest in our school. Whether you are visiting our campus or our webpage, and whether you are parents, students, alumni, or friends of the St. Joseph community or any other school community, we hope that your time spent with us is enjoyable and meaningful.
Our mission at St. Joseph - To Image Christ in Mind, Heart, Body, and Soul -suggests two important ideas. First, we exist to spread the good news of Jesus Christ in the Catholic tradition and to model the Christian values of kindness, compassion, generosity, humility, and forgiveness in all we say and do. Second, we are committed to a holistic approach to education - the development of young people intellectually, physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually: mind, heart, body, and soul. We believe that every human being is composed of many facets, and that to develop fully any one facet requires the development of all aspects of the human self. We take this mission seriously, and every member of our faculty and staff is committed to it. Our mission is the driving force behind everything that happens each and every day at St. Joseph High School.
We have taken as our patron, St. Joseph, the husband of Mary and foster father of our savior, Jesus Christ. St. Joseph's loyalty, commitment, and humility are worthy of emulation. As St. Joseph was a carpenter, we too are called to build a better world for all humankind through service to others. We have also taken as our mascot, the Knight. A true knight is a good, loyal, selfless, honorable, chivalrous, and brave servant leader. As a school community, we aspire to all these virtues through both our work and our play.
Again, welcome to St. Joseph! We hope that the paragraphs above give you visitors to our school a sense of what it means to be a St. Joseph Knight. May God bless you and all that you do with the love of Christ Jesus, the Lord.
