St. Joseph Catholic School is currently in its fifty-forth year of operation. It is the oldest private school in Stuart and the only Catholic school in a twenty-five mile radius. Dedicated on July 22, 1961, by the Archbishop of Miami, the Right Reverend Coleman F. Carroll. St. Joseph Catholic School was originally a four-room school with Reverend Noah Brunner as priest in charge. Throughout the years, St. Joseph Catholic School has grown to be an educational institution that currently operates with a faculty/staff of forty-two members, a two-story building with multiple classrooms, state-of-the-art music room, modern computer lab, updated library, two playgrounds, indoor gym and covered Charger Dome court, athletic fields, and a newly renovated family center. In 2015 Father Noel McGrath dramatically increased the size of the school when the parish bought the Pine School property next door and renamed it the Family Life Center. In this acquisition was an enclosed gymnasium and soccer fields that greatly enhanced the athletic program. Many of these facility updates were made possible through substantial donations of generous donors throughout the years.
