Dear Prospective Students and Families,
Thank you for your interest in St. Joseph Catholic School in Bradenton. As the only Catholic School in Manatee county, our mission is to nurture the growth and development of the whole child from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, within the framework of a Christ-centered environment. It is our responsibility to provide students opportunities for spiritual growth, and enhancement of Christian values, so that each may pursue a life centered in Jesus Christ.
Our teachers are committed to offering each student the opportunity to grow to his or her highest potential. The curriculum offers students ample opportunities for heightened success and self-esteem. We are proud of our students' accomplishments.
