St. Joseph School offers a growing enrichment program designed to enhance the educational experience for the students by exposing them to areas of study not typically found during the school day. These activities are sometimes playful, sometimes serious, but always enriching and educational. These after-school activities complement the academic life of a student and help them grow socially, emotionally, mentally and physically. 

Following are some of the typical after-school enrichment classes offered at St. Joseph School Wilmette:

-Chess                            -Runaway Circus

-Martial Arts                     -STEAM

-Young Rembrandts          -Guitar

-Girls on the Run               -Acting

St. Joseph School Wilmette also offers both Beginning Band and Concert Band, which provide musical instrument training and performance opportunities. Both Band groups perform during our all-school Christmas and Spring Programs.

All classes participate on the Green Team, which is designed to raise awareness about the importance of conservation, recycling, and protecting the environment. This includes building and maintaining the school vegetable and flower gardens.

In addition to these classes, there are current and ongoing programs within the parish and the community that are encouraged and supported by St. Joseph School, such as:

  • Children’s Choir
  • Brownies/Girl Scouts
  • Cub Scouts/Boy Scouts
  • Adventure Guides
  • Altar Server Program
