Celebrate the Academy

This year’s gala, themed Down in the French Quarter, celebrates our award-winning school. At the Academy, the only all-girls Catholic high school in the City of Cleveland, it is our mission to bring a quality Catholic education to the 685 students entrusted in our care so they may change the world as compassionate leaders in a global society. The Academy empowers students to challenge themselves with a rigorous curriculum and explore endless opportunities to find their passions, including the Health Sciences Honors Program, Engineering & Design Honors Program, Global Scholars Program, the Howley Makerspace innovation lab and more!

Our annual “Celebrate the Academy” gala represents an opportunity to showcase your support of Catholic education to a broad and engaged community. In 2023, through the generous support of our underwriters and sponsors, virtual attendees and volunteers, we raised more than $275,000 in net revenue for support of tuition assistance and academic initiatives at Saint Joseph Academy.
This year, we honored these special women:

Helen C. Malloy '57

K. Kelly Hancock P'17
2023 Medaille Shield Award Honoree
