Spend the Day at SJA

Spend a day with us! Walk a day in the shoes of an SJA student and experience the warm and exciting atmosphere at SJA. There is no better way to learn about what it means to be part of the Academy community.

We encourage every 8th grade student interested in SJA to spend a day with us. You will learn about our academic programs, meet students and teachers, experience classrooms first-hand, learn about our extracurricular and athletic programs and explore the STEM Lab.
