"In order to fulfill the fundamental purpose of our Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools Mission statement we, the St. Joseph Guardian community, are dedicated to creating a school in which: All are welcomed and encouraged to develop and nurture their faith in order to know God and act as Guardians – to preserve, protect and guard what is noble and good. Faith and spirituality permeate all aspects of the school and Guardians impact the world, upholding the dignity and integrity of all God's creation. Staff and students experience authentic Christian community through involvement in Teacher Guardian Group. Staff members are creative leaders who implement innovative instructional and assessment techniques, are familiar with the latest curricula and uphold high academic expectations for students. Students experiencing difficulty will receive necessary supports and assistance to develop and achieve appropriate educational and career goals. Individual potential is developed and students of all ability levels are well equipped to meet the challenges of education, work and life. Open, trusting, affirming collaboration exists between staff, parents and students to enhance learning. There exists a safe, healthy, welcoming community where every person is valued. Staff and community partners collaborate to provide authentic learning experiences, thereby reinforcing the relevance of the academic and extra-curricular programs. Extra-curricular activities, either athletic or social, are instrumental in building a well rounded individual and in creating a sense of belonging and pride in the school."
