Social Justice

Each class at Saint Joseph School puts our Catholic faith into action by working together as a student and parent community to provide outreach to a local organization.

Each project is rooted in a developmentally-appropriate way to encourage scholars to engage Catholic Social Teaching:

1. Life and Dignity of the Human Person

2. Call to Family, Community, and Participation

3. Rights and Responsibilities

4. Option for the Poor and Vulnerable

5. The Dignity of Work and the Rights of Workers

6. Solidarity

7. Care for God's Creation
