What is the Saint Joseph Academy experience?

It is difficult to capture the Academy experience in just a few words. We invite you to explore what makes the students’ experience so extraordinary on our expansive and scenic college-like campus.

The Academy has college-based block scheduling where students have four 85-minute classes each day that rotate every two weeks. The class curriculum is completed within one semester, with the exception of Advanced Placement (AP®) courses.

Benefits of a college block class schedule

  • Longer length classes allow more time for interaction with teachers and other students, to collaborate on group projects, complete labs, etc.
  • Eases the transition from high school to college scheduling
  • In the middle of each day there are two 30-minute Activity Blocks, time that can be used for lunch, club meetings, exercising, tutoring, homework, reflection or socializing with friends.
  • A Saint Joseph Academy student is challenged and encouraged to thrive, and to pursue her passions!
