It is a primary to secondary school in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. It was established in 1967 and is managed by the Apostolic Vicariate of the Roman Catholic Church to Arabia. After its installation, the school was managed by H. E. Giovanni Bernardo Gremoli, O.F.M. Cap., Vicar Apostolic Emeritus, the former Bishop (retired Mar 2005) of the Vicariate of Arabia, afterwards succeeded by H. E. Paul Hinder, O.F.M. Cap., the current Bishop. The school, always associated with the Roman Catholic Church, was located initially with the church building on the Corniche strip. Following the decision of the local government that the site be altered, the present foundation was laid for church and school buildings on the 19th of March, 1981, and dedicated to St. Joseph, the foster father of Christ, whose feast-day is celebrated on the same day. The day-to-day working of the school is managed by the Carmelite Sisters of St. Theresa, led by the present principal, Sister Carmen.

The School Building is situated in a campus area of 400 x 400 sq.mt. The main building consists of 49 class rooms, 4 well equipped Laboratories, optional rooms, and a well equipped Library.
