Saint Joseph Academy is a private, coeducational secondary school which fosters high standards in academics, athletics, and service to others. Students are challenged to lead lives which cultivate a lifelong love for learning, honor, and excellence.
As a center of knowledge and human development which is rooted in the Catholic tradition, Saint Joseph Academy provides for the spiritual, physical, and social growth of its students, faculty, and administration. Our curriculum seeks to ensure that Christ’s example of compassion and understanding is fully expressed in every facet of our program.
With a focus on real-world issues and through the appropriate use of technology, Saint Joseph Academy will provide students with authentic learning experiences which will effect positive change for peace and justice in our world. Global citizenry is a reality that both educators and students must responsibly investigate and promote. At a time when mankind’s potential for worldwide cooperation faces some of its greatest problems, the generation now in high school will make decisions whose consequences can’t be overstated. Active involvement, higher order thinking skills, and education beyond the confines of the classroom are essential elements for meeting and solving the critical questions of the twenty-first century.
The Saint Joseph Academy team believes that young men and women with strong moral character and excellent college and career education will excel in their chosen paths. Saint Joseph Academy encourages a strong sense of personal responsibility among its students and welcomes committed parental partnerships as integral components to a successful and fulfilling school experience.
We are proud of our past; focused on our present; and confidently planning for our future!

Statement of Beliefs

It is the responsibility of Saint Joseph Academy to deliver a relevant, research-based curriculum which prepares students to meet the challenge of the twenty-first century with knowledge and confidence. Attention to the proper use of technology and media with an emphasis on higher order thinking and critical analysis are integral to our curriculum. Decisions based on Catholic teachings must guide the use of the ever growing technological innovations.

Going beyond the confines of the school and local community is essential as global citizenry is a reality. Such action fosters respect, understanding, and an acceptance of diversity which enables students to form educated opinions in the important work of seeking peace and social justice.

The creation of a safe environment ensures the well-being of our students emotionally and physically. Saint Joseph Academy strongly supports the dignity of every student. Respect for life in all forms stems from the reverence placed on each individual who is made in the image and likeness of Christ.
