St. Joseph the Protector School – 215-884-0843

In January 2012, the Archdiocese slated for regionalization the Immaculate Conception School in Jenkintown and Saint Luke the Evangelist School in Glenside. This merger resulted in the school, located on the Glenside campus, which is now known as Saint Joseph the Protector School. The name was selected to honor the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Chestnut Hill whose combined history in the two schools spans 180 years. The mailing address is 2336 Fairhill Avenue, Glenside, PA 19038. The school has students who attend grades K-8. Kindergarten has both half-day and full-day programs.

The Early Childhood Center-Little Joe’s Pre-K program for 3 and 4 year olds at the Jenkintown Campus-opened in the Fall of 2013. There is also a program for 2 year olds.
