John & Mary Zanetis Scholarship

This scholarship is provided by Mr. Steven A. Zanetis and supports children starting in kindergarten all the way through eight grade.  Students must maintain an A or B average to earn the scholarship each year.  Families may contact Carol Potter, St. Joseph Principal, for more information.  These scholarships are awarded in March.

Parish Tuition Assistance

St. Joseph - Olney, provides additional funds to parish families who choose Catholic education and need additional support.  Parishioners may contact Carol Potter, St. Joseph Principal, for more information.


Tuition alone to St. Joseph School does not cover the cost of educating a child.  The Catholic Parishes of St. Joseph - Olney, Holy Cross - Wendelin, and St. Joseph - Stringtown support the school in order to help keep tuition reasonable for families.
