Our Students St. Joseph's Catholic Community of Grand Rapids is a vibrant faith community located in northern Minnesota. St. Joseph's School is an important part of the St. Joseph's Catholic Community.  We love our students and are privileged to work in partnership with our school families.
Academic Opportunities Academic opportunities at St. Joseph's School include Math Masters, Science Fair, Spelling Bee, Reading Rainbow Writers' Contest, Geography Bee, and numerous field trips. We value the academic enrichment these experiences bring to our children's education. Summer Tutoring 
Service Activities No matter the age, our parish community embraces and serves everyone when we join together in sharing the importance of Catholic faith in our lives.  Students have donated their time through a school marathon by raking leaves for those in need.  Some students worked at the Food Self or collected donations for Habitat for Humanity, Grace House and the Itasca County Autism Group, and God's Little Angels' Orphanage in Haiti.

Thank you for supporting your children on their academic journey

at St. Joseph's School.

We work with a wonderful community of parents to help children

grow academically and grow spiritually-

important work for us all.
