St. Joe’s Catholic School Featured in Center of Excellence Magazine
Catholic School Center of Excellence magazine’s cover story this month features our partner school, St. Joseph’s Catholic School, in Waconia, MN. The article focuses on St. Joe’s innovative C-STEM initiative where student-led, project-based STEM education is fully-integrated with traditional Catholic values and learning.
According to school principal, Bruce Richards, “Our mission is to inspire all learners to become the person God intends. We do this by integrating Catholic prayers, virtues, and service with 21st-century learning.”
