About our school
Our mission is to educate and prepare tomorrow’s service focused leaders in body, mind, and spirit.
We’re a non-profit organization that equips Haitian children with an education based in leadership focused on service. By doing so, we hope that our students will develop a heart for service to transform Haiti as the next informed leaders of their country.
Haiti is moderately close to the United States in terms of location (1889 miles), but differs tremendously in its quality of education. Many children in Haiti are unable to attend school due to the financial burden on their families. Because of this, 46% of students do not finish primary education and only 28% of children attend a secondary school.
The Joseph School provides a tuition-free education to its students, opening the door to learning for over 200 students. In addition, The Joseph School provides both primary and secondary education, giving our students the opportunity to continue in school past the 6th grade.
Our culturally committed curriculum emphasizes leadership skills, critical thinking and trade applications. The Joseph School values celebrating Haitian culture, while giving students the skills they need to compete in a global marketplace. A graduate of The Joseph School is more than just an educated student, they are an informed community leader.
