St Joseph's College is a faith community where Catholic principles permeate all aspects of college life. The College endeavours to create an atmosphere where Gospel values are nurtured, internalised and integrated with the culture of the local community.

St Joseph’s is a co-educational Catholic College. Young women and men have the opportunity to socialise and to learn together. Teachers at St Joseph’s are conscious of individual learning styles and work hard to provide a wide range of learning activities to allow students to achieve their potential.

Being a Catholic College enables the values Jesus shared to be proudly embraced. The expectations are that students and staff respect every individual and have a strong sense of the sacred in life. People are cared for and encouraged to be the best that they can be. Service, care and justice are core values held by the St Joseph’s College community.

The College charism is concisely expressed in its Vision Statement.
