Caring. Catholic. Community.
Since 1910, St. Joseph has offered a high quality, Catholic Elementary and Junior High to Downers Grove and neighboring communities. We are proud to share our long tradition of excellence in Catholic education. We develop the whole student – mind, body and spirit – and prepare children for personal growth and academic success.
Guided by the Holy Spirit, St. Joseph Catholic School Community nurtures spiritual growth, provides challenging intellectual opportunities and encourages each child to become the follower of Jesus Christ that God calls him or her to be.
