Exploratory Programs

As a Catholic school in the Ignatian tradition, St. Joseph School is philosophically committed to the holistic development of each unique child. St. Joseph School believes that in order to prepare our students to be compassionate leaders, they need to develop the ability to synthesize, evaluate, and reason; abilities which are attained by studying a rich curriculum in math, literature, science, history, geography, music and art.

We provide a middle level curriculum that is challenging, exploratory, integrative, and relevant. Our Exploratory program, offered to students in grades six, seven and eight compliments the academic program and allows our students to more deeply explore a topic or subject.

Students select their Exploratory Class each trimester. Drama and Rock Band are offered each trimester while other classes offered may include: Art, Dance, Gardening, Guitar, Knitting, Mindfulness/Yoga, Music Production, Photography, Running, and STEAM.
