Welcome to St. Joseph School
St. Joseph offers a full range of programs as per Alberta Education. In addition to these, we are very proud of our Cooperative Education Program, which provides students with ongoing experience in the world of work.
Students are provided with Career Counseling at the junior and senior high levels in order to better prepare them for decisions when they complete high school. This service coupled with the numerous Career and Technology courses offered at this school give students the ability to experience and choose future directions. For those students who have special needs, St. Joseph offers a Special Needs and Gifted and Talented Programs. A special needs teacher and 7 aides are at the service of teachers who could benefit from either of these programs. Students may be assessed at the school level or if warranted testing is done by outside psychological services. Parents continue to be an integral part of these processes. To better plan for the academic success of our students, this school provides Instructional Responses to our stakeholders. Teachers analyze all provincial achievement tests and diploma exams written by our students in order to prepare a course of action for the next year. These responses are then presented to the public via the School Advisory Council.
