Departments & Courses

At SJA, we teach our students to be creative and independent thinkers. Each girl learns the importance of hard work and the value of being a life-long learner.

St. Joseph’s Academy provides a comprehensive college-preparatory curriculum that exceeds the standards required by the state of Louisiana. Principles are based on a combination of 21st-century skills; Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM); and ACT College Readiness Standards. The heart of the curriculum embodies the ideals of the Catholic Church and the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph.
