Academic programs at St. Joseph Catholic Elementary School exists within a spiritual orientation based on the Catholic faith. The tone of the school reflects a theme of respect and responsibility, a collaborative approach to problem solving, and a community focus made up of students, staff, parents, parish, and the wider community. You can read our Catholic Graduate Expectations (CGE) for additional information. Students receive sacramental preparation within the classroom but the sacraments are celebrated within their home parish.

Our school comes together to celebrate monthly school masses at St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church. As we are the only French Immersion School within Clarington, our students are members of parishes throughout Clarington.
