Philosophy of Athletics at St. Joseph Catholic School:
As a Catholic school, St. Joseph upholds Christian values and principles. Though our athletic teams strive to win in the sense of having the best score, we recognize the real value of Catholic school athletics is realized only if it fosters the development of the human person—both in spirit and in body—by cultivating Christian character, strengthening personal integrity and responsibility, and promoting the pursuit of excellence in all endeavors.
Mission of St. Joseph School Athletics:
The St. Joseph School Athletic Program dedicates itself to the pursuit of excellence in athletics within the framework of a Catholic community and in accordance with its primary role as an educator and spiritual guide. The athletics program is committed to providing opportunities for each individual student-athlete to reach his/her highest potential while developing the qualities and spirit of a Catholic Christian.
St. Joseph has an athletic director on staff that is administratively responsible for all of the teams, coaches and players. This individual represents St. Joseph Catholic School to the Dallas Parochial League and to the Athletic Director of the Dallas Parochial League. The athletic director is the school’s representative for all matters that concern athletics and all questions and concerns of coaches and parents need to be addressed to this individual. In the case of a conflict, the principal and athletic director will cooperate to settle a dispute.
St. Joseph School participates in the Dallas Parochial League, a league comprised of diocesan Catholic schools. St. Joseph athletes play other students from diverse backgrounds and skill levels. Parents who wish to know more about the DPL may go to the website at:

Everyone looks forward to the delicious meal and awards ceremony. We are proud that at St. Joseph Catholic School, excellence in education is matched by excellence in athletics!
