If you are moving to the Yakima area, or considering a Catholic education for your children, please visit St. Joseph/Marquette Catholic School to learn more about the school's academic and extra-curricular programs and how they build children's futures. Ask why we have "Faith in Every Student" and what that would mean for your child's education.

Education at St. Joseph/Marquette Catholic School and the Mother Joseph Center is an endeavor which involves the students, parents, teachers and priests in the development of each child.

Emphasis is placed upon a strong academic program. Each child will be recognized and encouraged in keeping with his/her own personal talents and abilities with opportunities available for special programs and tutoring.
