Middle School Program
For students in grades 6 through 8, the
St. Joseph Middle
School program builds upon the foundation learned during the elementary
years. Since 1894, this program has provided guidance and development
of the whole child, their mind, body,
and spirit in a faith-based and faith filled curriculum.
The basic curriculum includes religious
language arts, science, social studies, and math (Algebra is offered
in eighth grade). Students attend an annual religious retreat and
Mass twice a week and on Holy Days
of Obligation. Course and elective selections are done at enrollment
(and thereafter in each spring
semester) with the help of our counselor. Smaller classes encourage
student participation, allow teachers to pay
attention to individual students, and bolster a friendly, family-like
atmosphere where the child is able to express individuality in an
competitive, yet Christian environment.
Enrichment classes include Spanish,
applications, physical education, art, and music/band. Beginning in
sixth grade, students
may also participate in a variety of extracurricular and other
activities, including science fair, football, volleyball, band,
basketball, Student Council, Scouting, Builder’s Club, track, cross
contests through PSIA (Private School Interscholastic Association), and
Counts to name a few.
A student questionnaire, two
academic history, and an interview with administration are needed for
acceptance of enrollment. We will be
happy to assist you with any questions you may have about our school or
High School Program
The St. Joseph Catholic High School
program graduated its
first class in 1998 as a continuation of our commitment to the
education for the elementary and middle school which started in 1894.
The High School program offers a college
preparatory curriculum to all students including basic core classes and
expanding variety of electives. Small
class size encourages students to be involved and allows teachers the
opportunity to give individualized attention. The
family atmosphere allows students to bolster life-long
in a faith-filled environment of learning and competition.
St. Joseph high school students are
encouraged to participate in many outside learning experiences as well.
Our students have met with, had lunch with,
and attended many functions with former Presidents, US government
and world leaders. These opportunities
have given St. Joseph students experiences rarely found in large
Other activities include the Texas BEST
Student Council, Key Club, National Honor Society, Scouting, Latin Hip
Dancers, yearbook, and science fair. A
full listing of the course selections, electives, and activities is
with the counselor. The high school is
accredited by the Texas Catholic Conference Accreditation Commission.
