Mission & Vision

Our Mission Statement

As a central ministry of our parish, St. Joseph School - Fullerton educates children in PreK4 through 8th grade in the Catholic faith. Our mission is to cultivate an environment of academic excellence and spiritual growth within a loving, faithful community committed to family, discipleship, and evangelization.  

At St. Joseph School, we believe...

  • Children are our future
  • Catholic values should be incorporated into all curriculum areas and school activities
  • Each child is unique with different learning styles
  • Children need to be nurtured intellectually, spiritually, physically, and socially
  • Christian values taught in school and at home enhance a child's self-identity
  • The parent is the primary teacher and a valued member of the school community
  • Communication and mutual support between home and school are vital to student success
  • Self-respect, personal dignity, and a safe and positive learning environment are necessary in order for every student to reach their full potential
  • Acquisition of critical thinking skills formulates independent thinkers
  • Positive educational experiences increase a child's desire to become a lifelong learner
  • Education is imperative in preparing the child to be a productive member of society
  • Changing needs of students are met by a continuously evaluated curriculum
  • A variety of evaluative methods provide a fair assessment of learning
