Mission Statement and School Philosophy


St. Joseph the Worker is a Catholic parish school in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.  As a parish school, we serve the community by providing a caring, educational environment in which each child develops spiritually, academically, socially, and physically.  Together with the family, the faculty and staff provide the students with a foundation for success in high school and for development into responsible adolescents and adults.  By affirming and modeling the values Jesus lived and taught, the school community reflects the parish’s Catholic identity.


The Saint Joseph the Worker School community has a value-centered education committed to the fourfold ministry of the Church:  worship, love, service, and witness.  Parents are the primary educators of their children; the faculty and staff collaborate with them in educating our students spiritually, intellectually, socially, physically, and aesthetically.  We affirm that each child is unique; and with dignity and respect, we guide each student to attain his/her fullest potential.  We are committed to nurturing a community who encourages understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity.  While celebrating our diversity, we define ourselves as members of one Body, the Body of Christ.
