Why a Catholic Education Matters
Praying to God openly when times call for it is something that I saw my teachers doing and I hope to portray to my scholars that certain times call for prayer. St. Joseph School provides scholars with a quality education that incorporates the love for Jesus into the fields of study. The faith of the scholars begins to flourish and grow when the spiritual aspect of the scholars are watered with Catholic Education. St. Joseph School is a warm, welcoming community which allows scholars to feel comfortable which in turn allows scholars to learn.

Students will be analyzing the characters’ responses and how Esperanza changes over time.
