Our History

St. Joseph Catholic School, located in Anderson, was founded in 1967 and is home to children in K3 through 8th grade. St. Joseph was the first private school in Anderson County to be accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Our students score very well on national standardized tests, with many of the 4th through 8th graders qualifying for Duke TIP.  Staffed by certified teachers, our school offers small class sizes, personalized attention, and a family-friendly atmosphere.  These factors combine to contribute greatly to the success of our students.

St. Joseph Catholic School focuses on enabling children to reach their full potential, both academically and spiritually.  The students are taught love and respect for self and others, compassion, and responsibility, dignity, and integrity, peace and justice.  This integration of values and academics enables each student to grow as a whole person.

Many special subject classes are offered, including; Spanish, Music, Band, Art, Physical Education, and Computer. The school also offers several after-school activities including drama club, Lego League, and art club to name a few.  The PTO is very active and bridges the gap between home and school with many family-oriented activities.
