Dear Prospective Families,

Welcome to Saint Joseph Elementary School in Needham. We are proud of our rich history of offering faith formation and academic excellence since 1955 by educating the whole child ~ heart, mind, and soul.

We are excited to offer two pre-kindergarten classes and three classes for kindergarten through grade five for the school year 2018-2019. We will be adding a three-year-old Preschool class beginning in 2019-2020. Additionally, we offer programs for Before Care and Aftercare, an extended day program for our students. We currently have approximately 360 children in pre-kindergarten through grade five and they come to us from more than 25 communities.

We welcome your interest in Saint Joseph Elementary School and encourage you to explore our website and register online for a tour. We would love to show you our school “in action” so you may see all that we have to offer! If you are interested in finding out more, please call the office at 781-444-4459.

We have a rolling admissions policy for accepting students. We have found that families are interested in securing seats for their children early so that they know they are guaranteed acceptance and they may plan accordingly.

Choosing the right school for your children is one of the most important decisions you will ever make for them. We are happy to assist you in helping to make your decision in the coming weeks and months ahead.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Warm regards,


Charlotte Kelly
Principal
