St. Joseph Catholic School exists to foster four basic purposes of Catholic Education: the teaching of Catholic Doctrine, the teaching of academics, the building of community, and the witnessing of Christ by service to others. At St. Joseph School both children and adults strive to uphold the dignity of all human life, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or religion because every human is a unique creation of God, made in His image and likeness.

Congrats Robotics Teams!
St. Joseph School is a registered X-STEM school (Extreme: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). As part of this initiative, St. Joseph School proudly established a Robotics program in the 2012-2013 school year. This year, St. Joseph School sponsored two Robotics Teams to compete in the First Lego League VA/DC Regional Competition. Congratulations are in order for the extraordinary performance executed by the SJS teams on November 9th at the competition held at Chantilly High School. Our teams were comprised of current 6th 7th and 8th graders who competed in a field of 26 teams. The teams were scored on robot design, programming, performance, core values, and completion of a Nature’s Fury Project to help victims where they live, work and play. One of the SJS teams received the prestigious Judges Award and both rookie teams excelled during the one day competition. We are most grateful to our coaches, SJS Science Teacher, Mrs. Kathy Hurley, and our SJS Instructional Technology Resource Teacher, Mrs. Vonda Brown. Bravo St. Joseph students!
