Welcome to the St. Joseph the Worker Day School and Grade School Website!
I am thrilled that you are visiting our website and honored to greet you as you begin to learn more about St. Joseph the Worker Day School and Grade School. Whether you are visiting as a potential parent, a current St. Joe’s family, an alum, or as a community leader we are excited to share all the amazing things taking place in our schools.
As I am entering into my sixth year as principal, I am excited to welcome a new and exciting year at both our school locations.
Our theme for the 2022-20223school year is “Through Christ, We Can!” Our students learn that “We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.” Philippians 4:13. When we fall down, We get back up! We think and pray every step of the way!
We have over 35 students 6 weeks to two years old in our Day School and 143 students Preschool 3-6th grade in our Grade School. Situated in the Northern Panhandle, we are centrally located between Pennsylvania and Ohio allowing our families to come from all over Hancock and Brooke counties in West Virginia, Burgettstown and Avella in Pennsylvania and Jefferson County in Ohio.
Why would families travel 30 minutes to attend our schools- it’s simple, we are a school of excellence instilling character and intellect, where every child and family are prepared and empowered to fully engage in any challenge they may face academically, personally and spiritually.
We work closely as a faculty, school board and parish to offer not only an excellent academic experience, but also a caring and inspiring environment rooted in a strong Catholic identity. We are always working on integrating technology and resources into our newly updated curriculum to allow us the opportunity to provide a more individualized plan of instruction for all of our students. We also are the only Catholic school to have a full time resource officer that allows us to provide another layer of support and security to our students, faculty and staff. We are also the only Catholic school to have a full time school psychologist that adds additional support to our students, faculty, staff, families and parishioners.
If you are new or even a life-long resident of the area, we encourage you to schedule a visit. We would love to show you what we have to offer. If you are part of our alumni, stop by and let us show you all the new and exciting things taking place everyday.
No matter your interest in St. Joseph the Worker, thank you for taking your time to visit us on the web. We are so happy you did.
