Welcome to Saint Joseph Academy, where young women are encouraged and empowered to become compassionate leaders in a global society. 

For more than 128 years, Saint Joseph Academy has provided a faith-filled environment where young women are emboldened to flourish and broaden their horizons as leaders who value their minds, their faith and the dear neighbor.

Saint Joseph Academy, the only all-girls Catholic high school in the city of Cleveland, is rooted in the spirituality of our founding sponsors, the Congregation of St. Joseph. Since the establishment of Saint Joseph Academy in 1890, 30 years before women were given the right to vote, the sisters’ commitment to the education of young women has inspired us to provide each student who walks through our doors with every possible opportunity for academic excellence and personal growth.

Each young woman is empowered to discover and pursue her passions. Our groundbreaking initiatives such as the Health Sciences Honors Program, a variety of engineering courses and an innovative Makerspace are a few examples of the ways students are encouraged to push themselves to new heights and apply critical thinking skills. Other resources include an advanced technology environment, a state-of-the-art biology lab and Anatomage Table. 
The “Saint Joseph Academy difference” is our commitment to educating young women in an environment that allows them to express their unique selves and achieve full academic potential, while fostering love and unity with God and all creation. Each school year, we select a theme that reflects an element of the charism or spirituality of the Sisters of St. Joseph. This year’s theme is “Practice Empathetic Justice.” In addition, we offer four years of spiritual development that enable our students to embody the qualities of the “Character of a Saint Joseph Graduate,” a formalization of the philosophy that has guided the Academy since its founding. 

When young women graduate from Saint Joseph Academy, the rest of their lives are forever deeply influenced by the charism of the Congregation of St. Joseph.

Come explore the difference for yourself. I welcome the opportunity to meet you, as a prospective student, parent, alumna, or friend of the Academy. 

We are not just an all-girls school. We are an all kinds of girls school.

Sursum corda! Lift up your hearts!
