Saint Joseph’s is a well-established Academy with a legacy of 70 years educating the children of the Bogota /Teaneck area. In recent years, we have serviced students from many other towns in Bergen County. Saint Joseph Academy is Middle States Accredited and a member of the National Junior Honor Society.
Saint Joseph is a kindergarten through 8th grade Catholic Academy, with a pre kindergarten program offering classes for Pre-K 3-4 & Pre-K 4-5, which is under the auspices of the Archdiocese of Newark.
The primary purpose of Saint Joseph Academy is to challenge and educate our students spiritually, morally, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically for their future yet allowing them to be children in the present. In a loving, nurturing, safe environment, our students receive a strong religious and academic foundation, helping to bring them to their fullest potential in becoming responsible and productive citizens and members of God’s family. We accomplish these goals by encouraging our students to accept and live out the call of the Gospel.
