A Foundation Built on the Rock
We know how important it is to help children grow up strong in their faith from their earliest years. That’s why Saint Joseph Catholic School is the only school in the area to offer a Christian Montessori Preschool. The program has an excellent reputation and fills quickly. If you have children at that age, we hope you’ll consider it for their great first step into their faith education. As your child continues to grow and learn at SJCS, we will partner with you to ensure all of their God-given talents are nurtured and celebrated. We’d love to hear from you if you think this may be the type of education you’d like your child to have. We have a simple admission process listed below. Our Principal, Sara Michaelson, is also always willing to speak to you if you have any questions along the way. Give us a call at 320-363-7505.
Step 1 // Schedule a Tour
We can tell you all about the St. Joseph Catholic School difference, but we want you to feel the difference when you and your family walk through our doors. Come visit us, and we’d love to show you around. Bring your questions, and we’ll be sure to answer them, so you can feel comfortable and confident that you’re making the best decision for your child.
Step 2 // Fill Out an Application
Let’s get started – this is so exciting! You can grab an application at your school tour, or you can apply online. The application helps us get a better feel for your child and your family. Within a couple days of receiving your application, we’ll be in touch with more information!
Step 3 // Consider your Financial Investment
Is a Catholic education worth the investment? Absolutely yes. Our mission at St. Joseph Catholic School is to make quality Catholic education available and accessible to all who value it. We will not turn away families due to financial need. Instead, we offer a variable tuition model. Variable tuition factors in each family’s unique financial situation to determine a tuition fee that works for your family.
Step 4 // Celebrate!
We prefer ice cream, but you can decide how to celebrate this exciting step in your child’s education and faith formation! We’ll be working with you and your child to help ensure you all feel comfortable and welcomed here at St. Joseph Catholic School. We are SO happy you’re here.

“Being a part of St. Joseph Catholic School has truly been the highlight of my career. The families at SJCS are second to none, not to mention our staff. It’s incredible to see the relationships formed between our students, staff and families and how they impact lives outside the walls of our school. We hope you’ll come visit us and get to know our crew. I just bet you’re going to love it here as much as I do.”
~Sara Michaelson, Principal
We have a rare gem right in Saint Joseph – a Catholic education where faith and values are discussed each day that help nurture our children in a rapidly changing and confusing world. The quality of teaching is exceptional and there is a strong sense community amongst the students, faculty, staff, and parents. We would not want our children anywhere else!
Friends are like family! The smaller class sizes allow for individual focused attention for students. The students learn to expand their knowledge base thanks to the challenging, yet fun and engaging curriculum. We are happy we chose SJCS for our elementary education!
