Immaculate Conception - St. Joseph School Logo

The abstract line drawing in the ICSJ logo is a rendering of the Holy Family in which Joseph cradles Mary and the infant Jesus in his arms. The mark elegantly embodies not only the essence of St. Joseph and the Immaculate Conception, but also the cornerstone of our School and Parish community – our families.
