Our students are known, loved, and encouraged to be their very best selves.

Our teachers are truly dedicated to our students and work towards building scholars, leaders, and stewards who will change the world. From their earliest years, our students learn to ask questions, pursue knowledge, seek the truth, and love learning. They think deeply, read expansively, and express themselves clearly in writing and speech. Our students are leaders and their vision, values, and beliefs will shape the direction of our world.

A myriad of opportunities at SJCA create critical thinkers who are ready to lead in many different arenas. Acknowledging God as Creator of All, our students are expected to use the resources of time, talent, and treasure to serve others. With the Lancer Value system as a touchstone, SJCA forms students who live as disciples of Christ.

History

Originally founded in 1957 by the School Sisters of St. Francis as St. Joseph High School, St. Joseph Catholic Academy has always been an educational leader, consistently meeting the evolving needs of the local community. In the early 1990s, responding to requests from many of the local grade schools, St. Joseph added a junior high school to its building. Supported by several parishes, this addition provided the targeted instruction, specialized learning environment, and enhanced facility that pre-adolescent students need. Around that same time, St. Joseph became an Archdiocesan school with a layperson board of trustees.

St. Joseph Catholic Academy is Founded
Officially opened on July 1, 2010 on two proximate campuses, SJCA is supported by ten local parishes and has grown to be the largest private school in the area. With its comprehensive focus on academic, moral, social and spiritual development throughout a student’s entire educational journey, SJCA has strong outcomes that validate its unique educational model. SJCA has the highest graduation rates, the highest average ACT scores, and the highest AP pass rates in Kenosha County. Even more importantly, every SJCA student from the youngest preschoolers to graduating seniors is committed to serving God, others, and the community.
