Le Couvent Saint-Joseph a la particularité d'avoir été le premier couvent-école dans une paroisse acadienne à l'Île-du-Prince-Édouard et au Nouveau-Brunswick. Ouvert en 1864, et agrandi en 1922, il est placé sous la direction des religieuses de la Congrégation de Notre-Dame. En 1866, environ 90 filles fréquentent les classes du couvent où elles étudient l'anglais, le français, la géographie, l'histoire, l'éducation, la grammaire, ainsi que la musique et la broderie. Maison d'enseignement bilingue, devenue école publique en 1902, le couvent offre un programme d'étude de qualité. À partir de 1914, les jeunes garçons peuvent fréquenter les classes du couvent. En plus de leur apport à l'éducation, les religieuses contribuent largement à la vie religieuse et culturelle de la paroisse. Entre 1864 et sa fermeture en 1984, le couvent a accueilli quelque 130 religieuses.

Saint Joseph's Convent, under the leadership of the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame, had the distinction of being the first convent school in an Acadian parish in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick.



It was opened in 1864 and expanded in 1922. In 1866, approximately 90 girls attended classes at the convent where they studied English, French, geography, history, education, grammar, music and embroidery.

In addition to their contribution to education, the Sisters significantly contributed to the religious and cultural life of the parish. By the time the convent closed in 1984, it had been the home of approximately 130 Sisters.
