Pathways (from Playgroup to High School)

Early Learning

St Joseph’s is located in the Eastern suburbs of Adelaide and is surrounded by excellent early learning centre and kindergarten options. We offer a playgroup on Tuesday mornings where we support learning centred interaction between parents and pre-school aged children. On Wednesday morning we offer our Joey’s program for 3 year olds.

Children starting school are able to commence Reception in Term 1 or Term 3. Those beginning in term 3 will complete six terms of Reception, this intake is conditional on places being available in existing Reception classes.

We have new children enrolling from Childcare Centres, Kindergartens & Pre-schools; below is a list of just some of the local centres that regularly have children move on to St Joseph’s:


Our students progress to a diverse range of schools upon completion of Year 7. For added peace of mind, your child is guaranteed a year 8 place at either Mary McKillop College or Rostrevor College should you wish to enrol there.
