Our Mission

St. Joseph the Protector School embraces our primary mission as 
disciples of Jesus Christ:  
to form each child in the Catholic faith.

In partnership with the family, we teach our children...

to Know God through study
to Love God through prayer
to Serve God through action

We are sustained by a firm foundation of study, prayer, and action in the tradition of the Sisters of Saint Joseph.  Our rigorous academic program prepares students to distinguish themselves as responsible, compassionate leaders in the Church and in the world.

"STJP is truly a special place. We looked at many schools before finding STJP. The staff is friendly & dedicated to our children."

– StJP, Parent

"It’s not just the education that impresses us so much about St. Joseph the Protector. It’s the way the children show kindness & compassion to others on a daily basis, during school and beyond.  That only comes from teachers & staff that truly care about each child within the school."

– StJP, Parent

"The people (teachers, parents and students) make STJP a wonderful place. It is a joy to walk the halls and feel the vitality of the classrooms in session."
