Faith and Virtues


At St. Joseph Parish School we live our faith daily with the children and understand the strong role a Catholic education provides.  Our curriculum includes education in Religion, daily prayer, and weekly masses or prayer services.  The SJPS promise to our students is to pass on the Catholic faith, seek Christ in our daily lives, and help students fulfill their God-given potential.

Developing Character

As part of our mission, St. Joseph Parish School gives back to the community, nation, and world through monthly service projects. In 2021-22 we filled 14 Thanksgiving Baskets for the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry to share with our neighbors in need. We also created handmade bags of Valentines to share with nursing homes and elderly neighbors in Grafton to brighten their days! Our students also collected donations of hygiene products, household necessities and small gifts for mothers and fathers for Los Toros, our Sister Parish in the Dominican Republic.  In addition, our Middle School Students conducted over 400 hours of community service including helping at the Kapco Christmas Toy Drive, delivering food to food pantries, making sandwiches for St. Bens, and helping neighbors with yard work or other duties.

Enriched Curriculum

In addition to the standard curriculum, SJPS continues to offer valuable instruction that many schools have eliminated due to budget constraints. Our students not only learn math, reading, science, social studies, and religion, but also music, handwriting/cursive, technology, art, physical education, and Spanish as part of the weekly curriculum. Students enjoy our large library, piano lessons, and field trips. We continue to offer STEM, athletics, band, choir, and our annual musical in grades 5th—8th.  Additionally, we provide 1:1 technology of iPads or Chromebooks and advanced math and language arts opportunities.

St. Joseph Parish School Annual Fund

Our exceptional, faith based education is made possible by generous donations from Alumni, family, friends and Parishioners.

Please Support SJPS

The Annual Fund goes directly to fund our Operating Budget to make Catholic Education affordable.  Tuition only covers 35% of the cost to educate a child each year.  The other 30% is generously funded by the Parish, and the remaining 35% is financed through our fundraisers and Annual Fund.  Our budget is used judiciously to cover ongoing costs such as teacher salaries, textbooks, necessary technology upgrades and special programming.  Please prayerfully consider making a donation today.  Donations are 100% tax deductible.
