Academic Excellence Surrounded by Faith
St. Joseph Catholic School provides an academic environment that shapes the social, emotional, and spiritual growth of each of our students. Our program plants the seeds which create a path of academic excellence beginning with Pre-K3 and continuing through the 8th grade.
St. Joseph Catholic School provides early childhood education with Pre-K3, Pre-K4, and Kindergarten classes. With a student-to-teacher ratio of around 9-to-1, our small class sizes allow for more one-on-one instruction with the teacher and help young students shape positive attitudes about their educational journey. Using a hands-on, multi-sensory approach, children explore the curriculum through small group activities designed for age-appropriate learning experiences. Each classroom has a classroom set of iPads for the students to use during center time.
St. Joseph Catholic School follows the Louisiana State & National standards. The core curriculum includes language arts, reading, math, science, and social studies. All students also attend religion class. The educational needs of the students are enhanced by computerized instruction with SMARTBoard interactive technology and iPads in every classroom; a computer lab; a library media center for research; and enrichment classes in the areas of art, music, physical education, Spanish, STREAM, and religion.
The middle school offers a rigorous curriculum in math, science, literature, grammar, and social studies. Each middle school student has a school-issued iPad for use during class and at home for homework and research. In addition to interactive technology in the classrooms, students are enrolled in enrichment courses including physical education, art, music, and Spanish. Eighth Grade students are given the opportunity to earn Carnegie Credit in 2 courses: Algebra I and Spanish.
