PLEASE READ! As a rising senior at Saint Joseph Academy, I have a few thoughts about the school. Foremost, it neglects the voices of its students frequently. As a student, I feel that I have little to savor and enjoy - poor cafeteria food, limited to no accessible parking, inability to wear SJA affiliated sweaters with my uniform, no turf field for sports, etc. Secondly, I have experienced teachers and coaches who have negatively affected me and my peers and seen no change. SJA has its fair share of inspiring teachers and wholesome staff, but many teachers are comfortable leaving students confused and upset. As for the positives, the sense of community within Saint Joseph Academy is unmatched - I will say that finding young women who you can relate to and enjoy being around is a for sure.
Saint Joe's needs to increase the quality of life for students and CHANGE THE GRADING SCALE. OUTRAGEOUS.

SJA wasn't on my list of schools I wanted to look at until I shadowed in 8th grade. I am not Catholic, didn't want an all-girls school, didn't know anyone, and was very shy. I absolutely LOVED it. The atmosphere was noticeably different than anywhere else I shadowed. Everyone was over-the-top welcoming. I can't say how much I have loved my time here. After a couple years with only 4 subjects of homework every night, I am a huge advocate for block scheduling. The school spirit is tremendous. As an introvert, I have never felt able to put myself out there as I have at SJA. I have gotten involved in multiple clubs, varsity sports, done lots of service, and have taken 3 trips with the school. No school is perfect, but the pros to SJA far outweigh the cons. I will be so sad when my senior year is over, but I feel well-prepared for college. I am applying to some selective schools, including two Ivys, with good chances of getting in. I know I will always be part of this amazing community!
Saint Joseph Academy prepares young women in a great environment. I love SJA so much! The teachers here love their jobs, the students all have an incredible bond, and everyone understands each other really well. I have been able to grow as a student in a very special way and am very appreciative of all the opportunities Saint Joseph Academy has given me. It has made me the person I am today!
