Our Mission

The School with a Mission

St. Joseph School of Fremont, affiliated with the Dominican Sisters and an integral part of St. Joseph Parish in historic Mission San Jose, is dedicated to providing a strong Catholic religious formation and an excellent academic education for transitional kindergarten through eighth grade students.  Partners in this endeavor, students, parents, educators, and parish community strive to live Christ’s message, empowering service-minded future leaders for Church and community.

Mission & Philosophy


Rooted in the Dominican spirit and a tradition of excellence, St. Joseph School recognizes students as learners, parents as primary educators, and teachers as facilitators of learning.  The school is committed to instilling Gospel values and providing a nurturing, faith-filled environment that:


  • Strengthens the individual’s self-worth

  • Appreciates the diversity of all peoples

  • Encourages caring interdependence, developing responsible members of  family, parish, and local /global communities

Dedicated to fostering each student’s relationship with God and others, the educational program is directed toward the growth of the whole child: spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, and psychological.

Documentary about St. Joseph

We invite you to view this inspiring documentary about St. Joseph.

While the Gospel has not preserved any of his words, his actions have resounded through the ages. Joseph of Nazareth stands out as the model par excellence of Christian virtue, a brilliant example of obedience to God and trust in Divine Providence. His role as protector of families in the difficulties of life and Patron of the universal Church has never been more clearly needed. Now, the Church is seeking to deepen its understanding of the Guardian of Jesus and of the Holy Family.

“In St. Joseph, we see our mission and mandate. Guard the family. Guard the truth. He led through service and creative courage. So must we. It is the only way to overcome the hurdles facing our families, the Church, and our culture.”


— Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly
