It gives me great joy to welcome you to the school community of St. Joseph Catholic School and to our official website.
Since 1943, and building upon the charisma of the Sisters of Mercy who first staffed the school, we have served God’s people in the Catholic Community of our two parishes, St. Teresa of Avila and St. Joseph, Auburn California. We continue today to provide a quality Catholic education to each and every student.
St. Joseph Catholic School provides a Preschool through Eighth Grade education that emphasizes academic excellence and character development in a faith-based environment, surrounded by a highly supportive, family-centered community.
Our dynamic, faith-based environment for our students is designed to promote the highest level of engagement and educational opportunities, while at the same time instilling in them Catholic Christian values. Through a spirit of community and cooperation we strive to prepare our students for future success in life.
In the school year of 2012/13 our St. Joseph Catholic School underwent its 6th re-accreditation by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) St. Joseph Catholic School successfully received another full six year term through 2019. St. Joseph Catholic School continues to meets and exceeds the California Common Core State Standards.
I hope that your visit to our website will be informative and enjoyable. I also invite you to visit our campus, experience academic excellence, and our faith-filled learning environment that promotes our core values and actions as disciples of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are proud of our students, our programs, and the entire school community!
Come and experience St. Joseph Catholic School - Academic Excellence and Character Development in a Faith-Based Environment!
