Favorite part about being a member of the Saint Joseph Academy community: “My favorite part of being a member of the SJA community is the opportunities I have had,” Maya shared. “Whether it is being able to travel abroad, take AP® classes, or make new friends, Saint Joseph Academy has provided me with amazing ways to explore who I am and the world around me.”
