We thank you for your support!  And here’s to a wonderful 2019-2020 school year.

** Volunteers please note: The diocese requires all parents who help at the school be VIRTUS trained.  The  VIRTUS  workshop is designed to give adults a greater awareness of their role in helping to protect children- keeping them safe from any type of predatory activity.  If you are not Virtus trained you need to attend a workshop.  Please go to www.virtusonline.org to locate and register for a workshop.  Remember to select St. Joseph Catholic Academy as your source so the school gets updated on your training.  You will need to be VIRTUS trained in order to participant in any Academy events where children are present.
