Amazing! Teachers, principals, office staff....they are all wonderful! The environment is loving and Christ centered.

My school is wonderful because of the caring and highly educated faculty in the school. I appreciate the attention that each child receives and the entire faculty from teachers, to aides, to administrators, to the janitors are the nicest people to the children, the parents, and any guests. The open door policy with all teachers is great because I know that if I have a concern at any time about my children I can reach out to the teachers directly to find a solution to any issue. I started my kids in Preschool and fell in love with the entire school system and could never imagine my children going anywhere else for a great education, great leadership from caring teachers and staff. I can't say enough good things about this school and the staff. It takes special people to be teachers, but I think it takes even more special caring people to be Elementary teachers. They are shaping the children in to who they will become, and at St. Joseph Elementary they are creating over 300 outstanding citizens with a strong religious background to ensure they will go on to do and create great things for this world. All because of the beginning they got at this school and with these teachers.

This is the most awesome school system available! My children not only learn from an outstanding staff and from an amazing curriculum, but they are supported and educated in the teachings of God. What more can you ask for. The children in this school are the most polite, friendly, well rounded I have ever had the opportunity to meet. My children are so lucky to grow up with peers who will not hesitate to discuss their belief systems. And of course they are supported in the same amazing way by every caring adult they come into contact with in the school. I give BCACS an A++++.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
