Providing over 100 years of Catholic education, St. Joseph School was established in 1917.  Throughout the years, St. Joseph has changed in appearance but our mission has remained the same to provide a superior Catholic education to the youth of the West Branch and surrounding area. 

     We have been known throughout our community for our academic excellence. For example, in the past 16 years,  St. Joseph School graduates achieved Valedictorian or Salutatorian 14 times from Ogemaw Heights High School.  We have also had Valedictorians and Salutatorians in neighboring districts such as Standish Sterling High School.  

     Currently we educate students from 3 years old through 8th grade.  With small multi-age classrooms we are able to provide developmentally appropriate lessons that appropriately challenge students.
