    2021 Event Weekend
As the only all-girls Catholic high school in the city of Cleveland, Saint Joseph Academy currently serves 685 young women and provided more than $2.2 million in tuition assistance and merit awards for the 2019-2020 school year. The Academy provides an opportunity where students challenge themselves with a rigorous curriculum and endless opportunities, including the Health Sciences Honors Program, Engineering & Design Honors Program, Global Program, award-winning athletics and arts programs, a Makerspace innovation lab, and more!

Our annual “Celebrate the Academy” gala represents a tremendous opportunity to showcase your support of Catholic education to a broad and engaged community while helping us support the young women of Saint Joseph Academy.

The 2021 gala was held virtually as a weekend filled with opportunities to honor the Grit, Grace & Gratitude of our incredible and resilient community. There were more than 300 guests and volunteers in attendance, netting more than $237,000 for the 73% of our students who rely on tuition assistance in order to attend Saint Joseph Academy.
