Welcome to Saint Joseph Academy

Hammonton, NJ

St. Joseph Academy is one of New Jersey’s premier, private, college preparatory schools. We go beyond traditional education by focusing on the fundamentals lost in today’s society that leave students unprepared for some of life’s everyday challenges.

Our students experience exceptional academic results, well beyond that of public schools. As a faith-based academy we focus on instilling integrity, moral stability, respect, leadership and acceptance of diversity.

The fact that our students are chosen by the nation’s leading universities and lead successful personal and professional lives isn’t a coincidence … it’s planned.

We’re here to help you make this life-changing decision with confidence.
