St. Joseph School, the Big Island’s oldest private school, was founded by Fr. Charles Pouzot, SS.CC., on April 1, 1869.
Since its founding, St. Joseph School has become a well-respected comprehensive institution of Catholic education—the only Catholic school on Hawaiʻi Island serving students in preschool through grade twelve. Although Catholic by tradition, St. Joseph School accepts a wide range of students from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds.
