St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Academy

Challenging Young Minds to Discover Their Best Selves

Situated in a prime location in the middle of Windsor Terrace, across the street from the F/G trains and blocks from the southwest corner of Prospect Park, St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Academy offers pre-kindergarten for 3- and 4-year-olds, and kindergarten through grade eight.

The academy offers a challenging curriculum focused on rigor, respect, reverence, responsibility to self and service to others. The academy is proud to be a safe and encouraging environment that challenges bright minds to explore their interests and discover the best in themselves, their classmates and the world.

Strengthening the Catholic Vision

No two children are exactly alike and no two children learn in exactly the same way. Programs at St. Joseph’s are designed to help each student learn as fast as they can and take as much time as they need in order to produce the best possible learning outcomes. To nurture the spiritual dimension of students’ lives, class Masses, prayer services and various community service endeavors are undertaken to strengthen the Catholic vision of faith formation and community service.

Development of character and self discipline are strong pillars of the academy. Students are encouraged to be courageous in expressing their personal convictions and values in the safe environment of the classroom and to practice those values in the schoolyard.

Art, music, Spanish, computer lab, Aquinas Honors Club and Algebra 1 are among the academy’s offerings, as well as bus service, a school library, occupational therapy, SETSS, speech services, a school counselor, an IEP specialist and a full-time nurse. Extracurricular clubs and activities include coding club, track, cheerleading, basketball, board games, cooking and ballroom dance.

“Mommy and Me” classes also give prospective families a chance to experience the academy firsthand.
