Welcome to the St. Joseph Public School's web site. Whether you are a parent, student, alumni or just a visitor, I hope you find this site interesting and helpful. We are proud of this district and what we offer to our students. In an effort to insure that every decision we make as a district is focused to a common end, we have developed a strategic plan that allows us to weigh every decision against that goal.

Our Purpose:
The purpose of SJPS is to prepare students to successfully meet
the challenges of the future, and inspire caring compassionate,
motivated individuals who will perpetuate the American way of life.
Our Values:
Excellence, Pride, Teamwork, Diversity, Integrity and Compassion
Our Vision:
St. Joseph Public Schools will be recognized as "A Lighthouse
District," using research based strategies, leading edge
technologies and innovative practices to provide the highest quality learning experiences by
  • Delivering a curriculum that meets the needs of all learners
  • Achieving organizational and financial excellence
  • Forming a community of learners with a continuous improvement culture
  • Providing facilities designed to meet or exceed requirements
  • Using proven methods and equipment
Our Strategic Plan is particularly important as we go through these hard economic times. Every decision to spend or cut must be made with our strategic goals in mind. In fact, every decision we make must ultimately bring us closer to our goal of being "A Lighthouse District."

Please feel free to send any comments you have regarding our strategic plan to: or directly to 3275 Lincoln Ave., St. Joseph, MI 49085.

- Ann M. Cardon, Superintendent
