Principal's Message

Welcome to St. Joseph School. We are a part of the Holy Spirit Catholic School Regional District and are located in Coaldale, AB.

We are a K-9 school along with having an outstanding Early Learning Program with students starting as early as three years old and programming set to meet the needs of the student. Our students are then able to complete up to grade 9 in our family orientated learning community. At St. Joseph School, our purpose is to achieve academic excellence within a family community. Our motto is "We are Family" as we truly believe that everyone who enters our building belongs to our family. The children here are not just our students but our children.

We believe that the parents and guardians are the primary educators of our children and in partnership with the parish (St. Ambrose) we work as a third partner to give our children an education rooted in the gospel values. Fr. Ian Gagne makes regular visits to the school and our students attend mass at St. Ambrose on a regular basis. The relationship between home, parish and school is integral to the development of children.

If you are interested in learning more about St. Joseph School or would like to visit our school, please feel free to contact our Associate Principal, Mr. Christensen, or myself.

God bless,

Mr. Kinahan-Principal
