Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to our St. Joseph Catholic Academy Family. We are so excited to have you as a part of our
community. At St. Joseph Catholic Academy, we believe in the education of the whole child:
spiritually, academically, socially, and emotionally.

St. Joseph Catholic Academy is a community built on collaboration between all of our families,
students, and staff, resulting in a comprehensive learning environment. When you choose a Catholic
education, you join a community which provides a foundation for life. Your child is in a safe and
secure environment, supported by caring staff and leaders who believe in their vocation to educate
and love your children.

Our mission at St. Joseph Catholic Academy is to provide academic and spiritual excellence in a
Catholic environment and ultimately to support your work at home as parents and guardians to
develop your children in their faith formation and academic achievement. Children are born with
inquiring minds, and we must be committed to nurturing that innate sense of inquiry by providing
them with quality and engaging opportunities to learn, both at school and at home. We must teach
them to think critically, to problem solve, and to know how to access information.

The pages of our handbook are filled with important information regarding school policy and
procedures. Parents and students should review the contents together. We look forward to working
with you and your child and to a wonderful, productive school year filled with rich academic and
spiritual experiences supported by technology and individualized instructional techniques! We
appreciate your cooperation and support, and we welcome your suggestions and ideas for

Thank you once again for your support and trust in us as we cultivate your children’s faith and open
their eyes to the wonder that is God. At St. Joseph Catholic Academy, we live our faith, serve our
community, excel in our academics, and develop life-long followers of Christ.

God bless you,
L. Monica Alvarez
Interim Headmaster
