Statement of Philosophy

The philosophy of St. Joseph School reflects its position as a central member of the Catholic School System of Danbury, Connecticut.

St. Joseph School is a multi-cultural, child-centered school striving to be a living community of faith. This school seeks to permeate every educational experience within the guidance of the school with the message of love and the vitality of Christ's presence. We recognize that each person is a loved and loving being who desires to know and act rightly.

We believe that parents are the prime educators, and we work to reinforce the education that parents have begun in their homes. Communication between home and school is an integral component of our philosophy.

We realize that the child comes to our school with a distinct set of values, emotions, personality, and family background. We encourage an inclusive curriculum which provides for the development of the whole child - spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally. We seek to instill in our community a strong sense of Christian morals and ethics, enabling each to become contributing member of our global society.

Mission Statement
Saint Joseph School thrives on propelling students from Pre-K to Eighth Grade toward a future where academic accomplishments are embraced by traditional Catholic identity and values in a safe environment.

The school is committed to nourishing young diverse minds while feeding spiritual growth with an emphasis on the formation of character and leadership.

Students work interdependently in academics, arts, and athletics to ensure a commitment to the whole student and to the development of our faith community.

In an ever-changing world and educational landscape, Saint Joseph School integrates innovative technology to effectively meet the needs of the students.
