St. Joseph Parish School is pleased to share the news that we have been awarded a grant from The Catholic Community Foundation in the amount of $12,000! This grant will go into a new Angel Fund that will provide tuition assistance for families above and beyond what St. Joseph Parish School is able to provide through scholarships and tuition discounts. Funds will be available beginning in the 2021-22 school year and will remain in the fund as needed.
We are always grateful to our generous donors who fund our Scholarship Fund and help families bridge the gap between the cost to educate a child and actual tuition. Many families have faced hardships during the past year and this generous grant from the TCCF will enable us to offer additional tuition assistance to families in need. St. Joseph Parish School develops the whole child and prepares them to be educated, faithful, dedicated, and reverent servants of society.
Many thanks to Principal Matthews in securing this grant. She has a continued determination to ensure St. Joseph Parish School is able to live our mission of Teaching, Learning, Leading, and Serving as the Hands of Christ.

At St. Joseph Parish School we live our Faith daily with the children. We understand the strong role a Catholic education provides. We pray daily along with education in Religion as part of the curriculum. We also join in weekly masses or prayer services. We pass on our Catholic Faith as we seek Christ in our daily lives and help students fulfill their God-given potential.
We are proud of our quick adjustment to Distance Learning during the spring 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic that closed all schools in Wisconsin. Due to your generous donations, we have 1:1 technology in our classrooms, allowing a seamless transition to learning at home.
In fall of 2020, following guidelines from multiple health & education resources, we returned to in-person learning.

The faculty of St. Joseph Parish School are dedicated to helping our students grow in mind, body, and spirit. Working together, we have been successful in remaining in our classrooms.
