Our Mission:

Academic Excellence in Catholic Tradition.



About our School

Saint Joseph School has offered quality Catholic education to the greater Nashville area for over 60 years. We are committed to join with parents seeking a good Catholic education for their children in the formation of our students, educationally and spiritually, while offering a positive school experience. Our school community is warm and vibrant, with families from various surrounding areas of Nashville.


Our Vision

The vision of St. Joseph School, based on the mission we have embraced, is to extend beyond our status as an outstanding Catholic school and aspire to become distinctive in our role of building and living the Kingdom of God.

Guided by the truths of the Gospel, all graduates will possess a positive self-image reflecting their Christian identity, a moral responsibility to their community, and an academic preparedness enabling them to face the challenges of higher education.

Our students will engage in learning that is purposeful, relevant, life-long, and transferable. A superior curriculum will be driven by the teachings of the Catholic Faith, high academic standards, a well-resourced facility, and a commitment to the community.

As a superior Catholic school, we will illuminate our corner of creation with the ever-burning light of Jesus Christ, now and forever.




Our school size is big enough to offer great programs, but small enough to feel like home.



Years Serving communities

Our school has served Nashville, Madison, Gallatin, Hendersonville, Tennessee since 1953.



Thousand children Impacted

Our track record is the best in the area for helping educate and shape over 13,000 students.


Our Programs

We have many programs available that help shape our overall school offering. We offer high quality Pre-Kindergarten programs, before and after school care, interesting extracurricular activities like forensics, and many sports programs students can choose from.



The St. Joseph Pre-Kindergarten program is a great way for a child to continue the spiritual and educational journey that the parent has begun at home. The program serves children aged 3, 4 & 5. We believe in educating the whole child by focusing on intellectual, social, emotional, physical, spiritual and creative growth. Our philosophy is to provide a stimulating environment in which activities are planned to help each child succeed at his/her own level of development. 


We have a Forensics team, a Robotics club, a Yearbook club and Technology club. Many of our students are also involved in Boy and Girl Scouts.


The Saint Joseph After School Program is an extension of the school day at Saint Joseph School.  The policies and procedures in place are an extension of the Saint Joseph School Parent-Student handbook.  All SJS policies and procedures are in effect during the After School Program.



We offer the following sports: Cross Country, Football, Cheerleading, Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer and Golf.

Our family has been welcomed with open arms. The leadership and faculty are truly engaged with our children and care about the whole child. We are so lucky to be part of the SJS family.
