St. Joseph School and Parish have entered carefully into the social media using the good services of Missy Campbell. This is not an indiscriminate use where we try to flood the media, but rather we position ourselves carefully and with quality. We especially wish to advertise our school and the vibrancy of both faculty and children.
I am not a great user of social media but it certainly has captivated so many. Here are the links of some social media in which we are present and how you may be able to access them with your computer. We want to be on the social media often enough to gain adherence, present quality material to engage, and finally to advertise the excellence of our program. The links are listed below if you care to look at the information on these media sites.

One month ago we placed in the bulletin consideration for a senior housing project along Schroeder Rd. The hope was to start off in a small way with perhaps three or four duplex homes. However, we are drawing up plans for land usage that would incorporate additional residences in the same area to form a community.
There are at least two very explicit purposes for this endeavor. There is a trend for some older couples or singles to move out of their larger home once families are disbursed and to move into a smaller community where some of the outside concerns such as snow removal and cutting grass are taken care of. In addition, this project had the added thought of helping support for St. Joseph School. The running of a private school will always need financial support and such a housing project can give this annually without explicit fundraising.
We are looking for individuals or couples who may have an interest in occupying one of the units. We will not engage in this activity unless we have persons showing interest. If you have an interest please contact Mr. Don Armbruster, general superintendent at St. Joseph Parish, or Sandy Blazewick, the administrative assistant.
The growth of our school is from the bottom up but will take a couple more years before the bottom reaches the top grades. This means that the enrollment in the High School Preparatory Program, grades 5, 6, 7, and 8 may be low. How can we make these small numbers work to the greater advantage of the students? Personalized education suggests opportunities.
St. Joseph School uses the approved state curriculum. We supplement this curriculum in major ways geared toward better success in high school and college. We hope to do this by tailoring the state curriculum. We shall emphasize distinguished and thoughtful expression in writing, speaking, art, and music. Read more in the page St. Joseph High School Preparatory Program.
Our High School Preparatory Program is to give the students a major start both in studies and personal confidence that will carry them on time through high school education and college education. St. Joseph will always pioneer in advancing education and doing it above the ordinary. I was president of a university for eighteen years and know that high percentages of students enter college needing great numbers of remedial courses. St. Joseph School prepares for the future.
