Our Mission Statement:
With Jesus as our role model, St. Joseph Catholic Elementary exists to educate the youth of the area spiritually, morally, academically, and socially in a safe, Catholic, Christ-centered environment.
The Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux is committed to ensuring that children and youth who participate in church/schoolactivities sponsored in our diocese can do so in the safest and most secure setting possible. In an effort to fulfill this commitment, allemployees and volunteers who have contact with children or youth (18 and under)for ANY length of time are required to take the online Safe Environment Training.
Your first step to completing your Safe Environment requirements is to complete the Volunteer Ministry Application (VMA) and turn it in toyour Church or Catholic School. Visit our online Safe Environment Training website for the VMA form and to begin your Safe Environment Training: http://safeandsacred-htdiocese.org.
Once completed, your Safe Environment training is valid during a three-year cycle beginning on July 1, 2018 thru June 20, 2021.
In 2006 St. Joseph became the first Catholic elementary school in the Houma-Thibodaux Diocese to receive accreditation from the Southern Association of Schools and Colleges (SACS) and is now accredited by AdvancED along with all other schools in our Diocese via the systems accreditation process.
