Welcome to St. Joseph Catholic School
St. Joseph's began serving the Wenatchee Valley and surrounding areas in 1955. In the beginning, four sisters of St. Joseph of Peace instructed a total of 230 students in grades one through four. St. Joseph's School offers a complete curriculum that meets all Washington State Essential Learning Standards and Grade Level Expectations. St. Joseph's graduates continue to excel in the local public system. Nearly all families contacted in graduate surveys report their children are maintaining honor role status. Middle school teachers routinely report they can tell St. Joseph school students by their behavior, discipline and academic performance.
Our school is one of eight in the Diocese of Yakima recognized by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in the form of a monetary grant. This grant, the first of its kind to be given to a private school district in Washington State, cites our school's remarkably high levels of achievement despite limited finances, as well as the school's success in helping diverse groups of students achieve at high levels with high expectation, dedicated faculty and staff members, committed and involved parents, a shared value system and strong local administration.
