The greatest fulfillment is in doing God’s will.
We do not have to do great things, only small things with great love.
We do not have to be extraordinary in any way.
I can do what you can’t do and you can do what I can’t do. Together we can do something beautiful for God. We can be the little pencils in the hand of God.

St. Teresa of Calcutta, Pray for us.

Principal's Message

It is with a sad heart that I wish to share that St. Joseph Academy will no longer be offering a preschool program sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph.  This news was announced to Academy families earlier this week.  For over 100 years, the SSJ ministry provided some form of education at the St. Joseph Academy.  Many of our alumni and current students have been inspired and rooted in Catholic education through their program.

With change comes new opportunities.  Sister Deborah contacted Father Charles and me only a few weeks ago requesting that St. Teresa of Calcutta School carry on the torch and incorporate a preschool into our educational program.  After much prayer and reflection, Father Charles and myself have agreed to include a Pre-K4 program beginning with the 2019-2020 school year.  St. Joseph Academy graciously offered all the supplies from their program and to support us with the transition into this new beginning.  We are extremely grateful for the hope and support SSJ has in our STC program and we will strive to carry on their traditions for our community.

Thus, beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, STC will offer a full day Pre-K4 program, either 5 day or 3 days per week.  Price structures and location details are in discussion and planning stages.  A lot of thoughtful planning must take place to provide the best opportunities for our students and we will continue to provide you with updates as they become available.  Please keep everyone of us in your prayers as this transition is made to best benefit our community.

Enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year is now open!

Enrollment/Re-enrollment paperwork is to be completed online via this link and payment can be made by check or credit card via the website or school office. Credit card service fees will apply.  Paper enrollment forms will only be sent home by request.   

Re-enrollment for current students is due by March 1st for the discounted enrollment fee of $50 per family.  After March 1st, the re-enrollment will rise to $75 per family.
