About Us

Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to St. Joachim Catholic School. It is my distinct honor to share the many opportunities awaiting students at St. Joachim School. We provide a rich and meaningful educational experience for children in grades TK through 8th. Our curriculum offerings are driven by our philosophy of educating the whole child; mind, body, heart, and soul.

We are first and foremost a Catholic school. Catholic teachings and values are at the core of everything we do. Students who attend St. Joachim are immersed in a school culture which promotes kindness, social awareness, and personal responsibility. We provide a safe and nurturing environment while students are learning to make positive choices and be held accountable for their own actions. Monthly service-learning projects encourage students to give back to the larger community.

Students receive rigorous academic instruction, which is aligned with current state and Diocesan standards. With an emphasis on meeting the needs of all learners, our dedicated Learning Resource Teacher works in tandem with classroom teachers to enhance and/or support student learning.

Our aim is to partner with parents as their children are on their educational journey. Our highly qualified teachers work in collaboration with parents to ensure that each child is learning and working to his or her fullest potential. If issues are encountered along the way, an open-door policy is in place to help parents, teachers, and administration work together to resolve conflicts. We know that parents want the very best for their children. At St. Joachim School, we, too, want the best for your children and we are confident that we provide an excellent, well rounded education to our students.

Mission & Beliefs

St. Joachim students thrive in a learning environment where excellent academics are infused with spiritually rich experiences.

We partner with parents as their children are on their educational journey, developing the whole child: mind, body, heart and soul.

Understanding that our students are the future leaders of tomorrow, we foster an environment where students are challenged to think critically to develop their talents. Students are encouraged to take personal responsibility for their own learning and to adapt with ongoing technological change.

We strive to prepare our students to respectfully contribute to cross- culturalism, the global community, and to learn, live and love their faith.
