The Academy of St. Joseph at Washington Place reinvigorates the Catholic tradition of academic excellence by motivating and guiding students with a humanities-based curriculum characterized by the school's motto: Character, Competence, Compassion.
Every member of the Academy family challenges students with a rigorous and rich curriculum. Students become critical thinkers, collaborative problem-solvers, and global thinkers through a deep understanding of mathematics, science, and humanities. Students pursue daily instruction in Spanish to achieve mastery of basic conversational, writing, and reading by the end of the eighth grade. Art, Music, and Physical Education are integral elements of the Academy curriculum.
We encourage you to explore our website and to contact the Academy to learn more about this remarkable learning environment in which students work toward positive character, competence, and compassion in a nurturing learning environment.
Academy of St. Joseph Reviews
Angela (head of the school) is a wonderful presence and her positive energy is contagious!
It is such a supportive and caring community. Your child is not a number at AOSJ. The teachers and administration know each child and their unique personalities, strengths, and weaknesses. Parents help each other out and look out for each other’s children. It takes a village.
Most importantly to us, there is a strong sense of values at the school. We wanted to preserve the innocence of our children, and not grow up too fast in this city. There is a focus not only on academic excellence, but also on ensuring they are shaped into good people- which is captured in the school's motto- growing in character, competence, and compassion.
