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.

"Saint Joseph the Protector is more than a school. It is a community, where my children are challenged academically, and growing socially through a variety of extracurricular activities."

"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."

– StJP, Parent

"Since day one our experience with STJP has been extremely positive. My children continue to impress me with the excitement for education, both academic and religious. This is truly a testament to the great job the staff is doing. Thank You."
