Mount Saint Joseph's Mission & Philosophy of Education
Mount Saint Joseph is a Catholic, college preparatory school for young men sponsored by the Xaverian Brothers. Faithful to the tradition of Xaverian education, Mount Saint Joseph strives to be a community of growth and learning characterized by enduring personal relationships, an emphasis on spiritual formation, a challenging academic program, and a commitment to justice and peace.
As a Xaverian Brothers Sponsored School, we view education in terms of message, community, worship, and service. The students and faculty are inspired to appreciate the faith in their lives, to understand community in a global as well as local sense, to experience personal and communal prayer, and to realize the service to others is basic to the gospel message of Jesus.
We view academic excellence as an achievable goal for all the students as each one learns and grows according to individual talents. We believe that the total education of each student necessitates an active collaboration with parents.
We encourage the participation of each student in a well-developed program of athletics and extra-curricular activities which complements our educational endeavor. The entire school is committed to the progressive fostering of self-discipline and independence while maintaining the primary importance of providing an environment in which all students can learn to become educated, contributing citizens of the world.
