One of the most important decisions that you make as a parent is where to send your children to school. Perhaps you are looking to a Catholic education as a means of obtaining excellence in academics while promoting a lifelong commitment of excellence to faith and virtue. These two pillars of excellence are what we call the “Catholic School Advantage.” For fifty-seven years, San Jose Catholic School has successfully proven this advantage by promoting excellence in academics, encouraging spiritual growth, and assisting students in reaching their full potential. Our students are grounded in faith, hope and love, and make a positive difference within their community.

Whether you are returning to San Jose Catholic School or new to our community, we look forward to a rewarding and growing relationship. San Jose Catholic School provides you with a wide variety of possibilities – all at one exceptional school.

EDUCATIONAL NEEDS/ACCOMODATIONS (DOSA Policy 700.7)

The Catholic school community in the Diocese of St. Augustine has a goal of helping all children reach their full potential intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. Individual schools establish admission policies for their own schools, which target students who are able to manage in a mainstream setting.

Limited resources prevent us from accepting students who would require more than simple accommodations.
