The purpose of this code is to help establish an atmosphere for learning which is as free as possible from distraction and disruption. Teachers are responsible for establishing and enforcing a discipline policy in their individual classrooms which will support and reinforce the established school-wide rules.

We are committed to providing a strong academic environment that nurtures life-long learners and encourages all children to become productive, Christian citizens. St. Joseph's curriculum is in accord with all Diocese of Lansing regulations and state of Michigan requirements.
