Global Opportunities

Our girls discover a world of opportunities through travel and cultural immersion, creating active and compassionate global citizens.

SJA students are offered numerous opportunities, both domestically and abroad, to be immersed in the history, culture, values and lifestyles of citizens around the world. Through these transformative experiences, our young women are able to connect with others in meaningful ways as they become increasingly aware of the world around them and their responsibility to make it a better place.

It is our desire that Academy graduates are engaged and caring citizens who embrace the Sisters’ mission to bring all into unity with God, with one another and with all creation. As our students experience the realities of other cultures, they gain appreciation for alternative perspectives and a deeper understanding of their role in the world community.
