St. Joseph’s Indian School, an apostolate of the Congregation of the Priests of the Sacred Heart, partners with Native American children and families to educate for life—mind, body, heart, and spirit.

Welcome to St. Joseph’s Indian School!

St. Joseph’s Indian School began operation in 1927 and today continues to offer a safe place to get an education for Native American children in grades 1-12.

Working at St. Joseph’s is unlike any other career experience—it’s a position that requires great dedication and energy as well as an enormous capacity for sharing and caring. Our mission statement represents our core beliefs.

Because some of our students come from less than ideal environments, our screening process is extensive. As you will discover, we ask more in-depth questions than traditional organizations would otherwise ask in the hiring process. We thank you for your interest in working with our Lakota children.
