St. Joseph's Academy has been heaven sent! In a world where more emphasis is put on Fashion and other foolishness, we found a school whose purpose is not tobnb offer an excellent education, but to build string Godly young women, with a servant’s heart. Understanding that serving others has far greater rewards than anything else we can do. My daughter has blossomed and gained a sense of self and purpose in her academic career at SJA that I'm convinced will help her succeed in her collegiate endeavors.

Overall, I think attending St. Joseph's Academy was a good experience to have. The atmosphere of an all-girls school is actually refreshing, and the teachers are usually top-notch. It's so easy to become friends with your teachers at this school. My main two caveats are the weak science department and lack of ethnic diversity. To me, the school seemed to be more focused toward the arts and humanities, which admittedly made me more well-rounded, but I wish I had more opportunities in the science fields. I would like to see AP Chemistry and AP Statistics added to the curriculum. Secondly, the school's demographic was heavily lacking in diversity, so that is also something I would like to see change in the near future. I think it's also important to mention that despite SJA being comprised of Catholic private-school students, I found it to be pretty liberal. I moved out-of-state for college (to the North), and I've noticed that there isn't much difference regarding political views.
SJA allowed me to access truly incredible opportunities. The science fair department is incredible, the AP courses are plentiful, and the students are very kind. The STEM lab faculty members are very helpful as well--I always enjoy my time in the lab!
