Inquiry is at the heart at of learning at SJCA with an intentional focus on discovery, experience, curiosity, and collaboration.

These school divisions work closely together to create a cohesive educational experience, integrating Catholic values with academic rigor and an embedded commitment to service.
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.
