Welcome! We are glad you are visiting us. For nearly a century, St. Joseph School has provided an excellent Catholic elementary education to the children of St. Joseph Parish which includes Summit and Garfield Ridge along with children from Bedford Park, Bridgeview and Justice among others.
Our school opened on September 8, 1913 and has since then educated thousands of students. We have been an integral part of the community and are committed to our future. We are proud of our legacy of creating Christ-centered students who do not just learn about their Catholic faith, but live it through the respect they have for all of God’s people. This focus on Christ, whether through daily prayer and religion instruction, or through attendance at weekly Mass, instills a sense of peace and responsibility in our students. This, in turn, creates an active student, grounded in our faith, yet willing to go out and make a positive difference in our world.
