PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION
The philosophy of Catholic Education formulated by the Diocese of Harrisburg is the base upon which our own school philosophy rests.
We, as educators, seek to make the first priority of our Catholic education program the development of a relationship with Jesus Christ and a commitment to Christian living. Strengthened by the power of the Holy Spirit, this commitment should, in turn, lead to the creation of a Christian environment where the dignity and diversity of each individual is nurtured and appreciated.
The faculty of Saint Joseph School views each student as a unique individual created and redeemed by God with the potential for becoming a more responsible Christian who, by witnessing the values of our faith, will promote peace and justice in today's society.
In cooperation with each student's family, Church, and community, we strive to offer an academic program which will promote life-long learning, enabling our students to develop spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially, and aesthetically.
Saint Joseph School, Hanover is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
The Mission of Saint Joseph School is to nurture the spiritual and academic growth of our students by challenging them to embrace the Gospel message, to achieve full academic potential, and, as Catholic Christian citizens, to make a difference in our school, our community and our world.
