About Our School

As the only private, Catholic school south of the Richmond area, Saint Joseph School has served generations of families in the Tri-Cities since 1876.  Our proudly diverse school community welcomes students grades JK-8 and an impressively qualified staff boasting several graduate degrees in their disciplines.

Rooted in the ministry and social teaching of the Catholic Church, our school intentionally supports the spiritual development of students from a wide variety of faiths and backgrounds. Saint Joseph School strives to educate the whole student and prides itself on small class sizes, individualized instruction, and a family-like atmosphere. 

As a staff and school community, we strive endlessly to balance our rigorous, well-rounded curriculum with the supported spiritual, physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development of your child. We accomplish this mission combining the academic standards set by the Catholic Diocese of Richmond with research-based instructional practices, technology integration, and extracurricular opportunities designed to foster creativity, critical thinking, and enacted leadership.
