Rooted in Love, Partnering for Growth:  A Strategic Vision for Saint Joseph Academy 2024-2028


We are living in a time of rapid change and significant challenge across many dimensions of our work as educators. Yet, we believe that Saint Joseph Academy is well-positioned to thrive amidst these challenges because of our strong roots in our mission of unifying love and educational excellence, inspired by the service and compassionate leadership of the Congregation of St. Joseph. 

Through a process involving input from our stakeholders, we have identified five areas of focus as we plan for the future. We envision these as elements of a living whole in which dynamic partnership is a key to success, much like the way the parts of a tree work together for fruitfulness and growth in a changing environment.
