Vision Statement: Saint Joseph Catholic School will promote an innovative learning experience, support nurturing teachers, and partner with dedicated parents within a diverse community. We will continue to inspire students to become empathetic and faithful members of their community.
After the funds were raised, a building at 25 South Market Street was purchased for the first school building. Five nuns from the Daughters of Charity arrived to teach at and run the school – Sister Mary Elizabeth Roche (who was the first principal), Sister Loretta Dinkgreve, Sister Gertrude Dolan, Sister Mary Simeon Manot, and Sister Eugenia Reeder.
In the early 20th century the school moved to its current location at 123 Franklin Street when the first school building was built in 1916. The second building at our current location was built in 1956.
