Positive School Environment

To foster a positive school environment where all students are educated in a safe and caring atmosphere, all Archdiocesan schools including St. Joseph School will follow established procedures for prevention and intervention for bullying, harassment or intimidation.

Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports (PBIS) has been implemented in every Archdiocesan elementary and high school to enhance academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.

St. Joseph School has achieved Bronze status with PBIS, the highest possible level for a new program participant school.


St. Joseph School has met the requirements established by the AdvancED Accreditation Commission and Board of Trustees, and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement.


All Archdiocesan high schools and elementary schools are accredited as a system through AdvancED. Every five years, the Department of Catholic Schools completes a system-wide accreditation review, which culminates with a visit by an AdvancED External Review Team. Each school is evaluated based on the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools.
