Saint Joseph Academy is a community where young women feel welcomed, embraced, challenged and loved –- a place where Catholic values are celebrated, and serving the dear neighbor is a part of everyday life. We believe women of faith can accomplish anything and we empower them to achieve their dreams.
As single-gender, faith-based environment, we offer young women a unique opportunity to grow in confidence, body, mind and spirit -- gaining an education as well as a sense of empowerment that’s a proven benefit of the all-girls setting. These lessons take place both inside the classroom and beyond through a rigorous academic curriculum and dynamic co-curricular and extracurricular activities. Coursework options include 18 Advanced Placement and 31 honors classes, as well as a Health Sciences Honors Program. Outside the classroom, young women can choose from 13 varsity sports programs and 57 student clubs and organizations to find their passions –- from world languages to the visual arts to social justice to science and engineering. Overriding all of our curricula is our journey towards accreditation through the internationally recognized International Baccalaureate® (IB) Middle Years Programme, which ties directly into our long-standing mission: to nurture young women to follow their dreams and become compassionate leaders in a global society. Our goal is to provide an outlet for every interest and encourage independent, critical thinking.
When young women graduate from Saint Joseph Academy, the rest of their lives are forever deeply influenced by the spirituality of the Congregation of Saint Joseph and the principles they practice: unifying love through empathetic justice, service to the dear neighbor without distinction, personal integrity and emerging wisdom.

Interested 7th or 8th grade girls are encouraged to shadow a current student for a day or attend one of our many events to learn more about the sisterhood of our more than 725 young women and thousands of alumnae.
Saint Joseph Academy is where a student can grow into a confident, spiritually rooted young woman, ready for the future. She can shine through her involvement in academics and campus life.
