The Catholic schools in the Diocese of Oakland, mindful of their mission to be witnesses to the love of Christ for all, admit students of any race, color, and national and/or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the schools. The Catholic schools in the Diocese of Oakland do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, educational policies, scholarships and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.
St. Joseph is a parish school, established for the children of the parish. The school also recognizes its responsibility of mission and service to the community at large, so other families are welcome to send their children to the school if space is available and if they pass other admission criteria.
St. Joseph School is open to all who would like to provide a quality education to their children in a faith-based environment. We welcome students and families of all religions; a child does not need to be Catholic (or even Christian) to attend our school.
Applications are taken year round. Assessments are given for all Grades in February. Students are accepted both for openings and active waiting lists after these assessments.
There is a $45.00 non-refundable testing fee due at the time of application.
No qualified students will be denied admission to this school on the basis of race, color, sex or national origin.
All Transitional Kindergarten students, Kindergarten students, and all new students in Grades 1-8, are on six months probation upon entering the school. If academic or behavior ability is not up to grade level expectations, the child can be dismissed from the school.
