We are a Catholic school, but we welcome students of all faiths. Twenty-three percent of our student body are non-Catholic. Students come from several different counties including: Boone, Kenton, Gallatin, Grant, Pendleton and Owen.
Our Catholic identity is the solid foundation of all we do. Our faith and religious practices permeate the school day. As Christians, we are reminded by St. Paul in Romans 12:2, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind.” The mind needs to be filled with the words of Jesus found in the daily reading of Sacred Scripture. Then our thoughts can rise to God throughout the day in praise, thanks, adoration, contrition, and supplication. We strive to achieve this at St. Joseph Academy.
Parents, as the first teachers of their children, teach them moral values that will benefit them throughout their lives. At St. Joseph Academy, we nourish these moral values in a Christian environment that encourages the students to openly profess their faith in God.
Non-Catholic students participate in the established religious curriculum and programs offered during the school day.
