    Our Philosophy

    Academy of St. Joseph teachers ensure that students acquire essential core skills and habits of mind, utilizing the New York State standards as the foundation our academic program.  We challenge our students to become critical thinkers and collaborative problem-solvers through our rigorous and enriched curriculum. 
    The curriculum is deepened with an emphasis on the humanities. Students study Spanish every day.  All students also receive regular instruction in Art, Music, and Physical Education, along with weekly instruction in Library Science, Technology, Chess, and Choir. 
    The learning environment at the Academy fosters student questioning, exploration, risk-taking, and informed decision-making.  Students create and participate in class projects that support their development as confident, competent, and collaborative learners.  Opportunities for hands-on exploration and real-life application allow students to extend and apply their knowledge beyond the classroom. 
    At the Academy of St. Joseph, we help students to students to develop skills that are foundational for lifelong learning, well-being, and social development.  Every learning experience is challenging and engaging, helping students to build confidence, a love for learning, a thirst for knowledge and wisdom, and strong foundation for their future intellectual, physical and social development.
