A Plan of Action for…

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”.
-Nelson Mandela.

The goal of education is to gain a better understanding of ourselves and the world around us. It is to acquire knowledge, improve upon skills and to make connections with others in our lives. When we learn, we grow and through this growth comes change.

At St. Joseph Academy, we believe in the importance and value of providing a solution-focused, strength-based program that empowers each student to make decisions (self-advocacy), to cope in an ever-changing world (adapt), to effectively communicate with others, and to grow into a positive member of society.

We recognize the role we play in assisting students as they plan for life after St. Joseph Academy. We believe that every student deserves to be in a positive and collaborative relationship with their counselor. In this relationship, there is open and honest communication. Through this dialogue, the student begins to understand that they do have the strength and support to make change.

The counselors at SJA are advocates for the students. We believe in collaboration with all stakeholders understanding that we do have the best interests of the students in mind. Working together, counselors are able to assist the students in their search for their true identity. As they mature and learn more about themselves they will have the confidence to go out and make a positive impact on their community and the world.

The counseling staff at St. Joseph Academy looks forward to the opportunity of working with your children. We believe our program will assist in the development of your student’s unique personality and skills that they can then share with others in their lives.
