Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

Going Digital!

At Josephinum, we are proud to foster a safe, collaborative learning environment for our students and look forward to serving you for the 2020-2021 school year. As a result of our commitment to you—while considering the risks and rewards of in-person education during these unpredictable times—we have made the decision to begin the school year, on August 24th, as an enhanced, fully digital learning program that is an effective and engaging instructional model offering group and individual learning opportunities.
