Our Mission

Saint Joseph School is a vital part of the Saint Brendan the Navigator Catholic Community, including St. Joseph and St. Mary Star of the Sea in New London, St. Paul in Waterford and Our Lady of Grace in Fisher’s Island, NY.

Our school lives the moral teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.  Our Saint Joseph School Family welcomes and accepts the unique gifts all have been given by God.   We answer the call to model Jesus as we work to build God’s kingdom as a diverse and joy-filled family.  We are an evangelizing community that educates and nurtures each person to be faith-filled, knowledgeable, confident citizens of the world.  Saint Joseph School is a holy place where we discover each other in God’s love.


Accept each person as a unique creation in God’s image.

Model Jesus as we make everyone feel welcome in this “holy place.”

Educate each other for life.

Nurture the diverse gifts and talents of the whole school family.
