Find out why Saint Joseph Academy is the right choice for you! Two things that make us unique are the all girls environment and our college block scheduling. In an all-girls school, you are encouraged to explore and develop your abilities, talents and interests without any distractions. We guarantee a commitment to a learning environment that places girls first and foremost. Our faculty and staff have an in-depth understanding of how girls learn and succeed. This does not mean that girls cannot compete in a coed world or that a healthy social life is not important. It does mean that a young woman can find her own academic and personal strengths in her own way, time and place. At Saint Joseph Academy, girls not only have equal opportunity, but every opportunity!

Please use our record release form, located in the right column on this page, to direct your school records to our Admissions Office. This form should be completed and then forwarded to your current school's principal's office.
