St. Joseph Parish School
St. Joseph Parish School is a community based, K-8 school located in Avon Lake, Ohio. Our school has been instilling Catholic values, setting high standards for academic excellence, and developing positive attitudes for service in its students for over sixty-five years. Rooted in our Catholic faith, our faculty and staff take pride in both providing a challenging academic curriculum and nurturing life-long learners. St. Joseph Parish School students are motivated and challenged by a curriculum that is based upon diocesan guidelines, which are aligned to the Ohio Common Core standards. Instruction is complemented by service and enrichment activities, as well as before and after school opportunities. St. Joseph School students demonstrate their love for Christ and others through service, treating others with respect, and aiming to do their best each day. We are a community working together, valuing children and teaching values.
St. Joseph, a Catholic parish school, models itself on the mission of Jesus Christ, striving to form compassionate young people who excel as Catholic Christians. We focus on spirituality, academics, and extra-curricular activities to create disciples who are the hands, voice, and heart of Christ.
We believe our ministry is to assist parents, the first and most important teachers, in the education and formation of their children according to the teachings and philosophy of the Roman Catholic Church. We believe education at St. Joseph School encompasses the spiritual, academic, emotional, physical, moral and social growth of each student.
