Explore Our Athletics Program

The Saint Joseph Academy Athletics Program aims to encourage, teach, and coach our students to compete on a Division I level. Our athletics program is designed to provide students with a quality experience and the opportunity to learn valuable life skills in a faith-filled environment.
A variety of sports are offered each season, which allows for more than half of our students to participate in a varsity sport. Our athletes are encouraged to cultivate teamwork, leadership, fitness, sportsmanship and learn how they can take those irreplaceable skills beyond the fields and courts of the Academy.
