Faculty and Staff

St. Joseph Catholic School employs only credentialed teachers who have demonstrated a deep commitment to Catholic education and who are wonderful role models for our youth. Students become empowered to attain academic excellence. The staff and administration have chosen to structure the curriculum program to meet or exceed California Common Core State Standards and Diocesan High School Competencies in all academic areas. Homework, grading, and communication policies foster a special relationship between student, parent, and teacher. Methodologies used in the classroom recognize the varied learning styles, aptitudes, and interests of our students. Above all, our staff and administration provide a caring, nurturing environment that enables each student to grow in love of God, neighbor and self.
