St. Joseph Catholic School provides students with a nurturing and prayerful learning environment committed to academic excellence, training missionary disciples to seek virtue, wisdom, and truth, in partnership with a community of active faithful families.
Catholic schools in the Diocese of Fort Worth are committed to opening the doors so that our students can reach further than the walls that would otherwise enclose them and therefore are able to recognize and cherish the eternal and transcendental goods of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness.
Teaching the Mind … Nourishing the Soul
St. Joseph Catholic School offers a challenging curriculum steeped in Catholic tradition and delivered by innovative and dedicated teachers who hold high academic and behavioral standards. We will help to develop our next generation of Catholic and community leaders by respecting and celebrating the God-given differences in each and modeling stewardship through community service.
At St. Joseph Catholic School, our leading goal is to focus on what we teach and how we teach it, all in order to form students who possess the ability to see the world and discern what is good, true, and eternal, to then habitually set aside that which is false and harmful for their minds and souls to encounter Christ.
