Spiritual Life

At Saint Joseph School, we take our Catholic Faith and traditions seriously while also creating a welcoming environment to those of all faith backgrounds. We encourage our students to live a life of morality, grace and joy. We have several weekly activities and special events that help our children grow closer to God.

Imagine this, 300+ students kneeling in silence in the gym, adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, praising Him in song and ending the day with singing and dancing as if they were at a rock concert! This is the true picture of our annual Alleluia Day celebration. Teachers, parent volunteers, students, and parishioners–all enjoy the day of adoration, praise, prayer, Faith Family group time, singing and dancing.

Eucharistic Adoration is the Adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. In a deeper sense, Adoration involves “the contemplation of the Mystery of Christ truly present before us”. Here at St. Joseph School, our students participate in Friday Adoration and Benediction on the first Friday of each month.

Our second and eighth graders are guided by our Dominican Sisters and our priests during their years of first reconciliation and communion and confirmation.

Can you go to St. Joseph if you aren't Catholic?

We welcome Catholics and non-Catholics alike to Saint Joseph School! We are a Catholic elementary school teaching Gospel values and offering a rigorous curriculum in preparation for a college prep high school in the Nashville area. We welcome Catholics and non-Catholics alike to experience our loving community with emphasis on high academic standards, technology integration, kindness to others and joy for life. For over 65 years Saint Joseph School has been serving students in the Dominican tradition. We are excited to have an opportunity to teach and educate your child, and we look forward to having you as part of the Saint Joseph School Family and Bulldog Nation.
