Welcome to St. Joseph School! My name is Kelly Roche, and I am the principal of St. Joseph School, an important ministry of the Church of St. Joseph.
St. Joseph’s educational programs, through the life and teachings of Christ, prepare its youth to be leaders in our communities for the common good, embrace the rich traditions of the Catholic Church, and assist parents in nurturing and strengthening the religious faith of our children.
Our school vision is accomplished through our strong commitment to teaching the rich traditions of the Catholic Faith in preschool–8th grade. At St. Joseph School students receive daily religious instruction and prayer, attend weekly liturgies, and engage in opportunities to apply the social justice teachings of the Church. We believe strongly in working collaboratively with students' families in all areas of learning--spiritual, social/emotional, and academic.
St. Joseph School provides opportunities for building future leaders through a strong CORE curriculum and service learning opportunities. Graduates of St. Joseph School excel in high school due to the strong foundation they receive in all academic areas. Through service opportunities, the students also learn what is required to be good stewards.
In addition to the above, the school offers all day preschool, Spanish in grades K–8, school uniforms, certified teachers, an intimate middle school setting for students in grades 6–8, busing provided for students in District #196, and is accredited through the Minnesota Nonpublic Accrediting Association.
Parish families wishing to enroll their children at St. Joseph School can apply for financial assistance through the TADS program. Currently, the school has openings in all grades preschool through 8th grade. I would like to personally invite your family to meet with me at your convenience and to tour our school. Our school phone number is 651-423-1658.
Again, welcome to the Church of St. Joseph and St. Joseph School!
