Welcome to our website

St Joseph's College has a long history and tradition as part of Dumfries' educational community. Many of the parents of today's students also studied here and think so highly of it that they send their sons and daughters to us. Our staff uses a variety of teaching methods to make learning fun. We try hard to foster an academic environment in which children feel comfortable so that they can study most effectively.
