St. Joseph’s Academy is a Catholic, college-preparatory school for young women in grades 9-12. The mission of St. Joseph’s Academy is to educate young women as responsible and unifying members of the world community. In the spirit and charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph, St. Joseph’s Academy offers opportunities for faith development in the Catholic tradition, academic excellence and personal growth.
Since our founding 151 years ago, St. Joseph’s Academy students have been immersed in strong traditions and academic excellence and have built life-long friendships with their classmates. Through a variety of academic and co-curricular activities, our students become life-long learners who are well-equipped to embrace an ever-changing world. Our robust one-to-one learning environment ensures that technology is integrated across our curriculum. Our goal is that SJA students leave here as confident, well-rounded young women who will make a difference in their communities.

Our Open House is held each year on the third Thursday in October, and we invite you to join us for an exciting evening.
