Admissions Overview

home / admissions / overview

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 over 50 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.

San Jose Catholic School offers early childhood (PK2 thru Kindergarten), Elementary School (1st Grade thru 5th Grade) and Middle School (6th grade thru 8th grade)

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.

Families who are interested in tuition assistance are encouraged to contact the main office for information about Step Up for Students (a privately-funded, state-administered scholarship program) and other tuition assistance possibilities available through our school.

Please let us know if you have questions or if we can assist you with the application process in any way. You belong here!
