"Not only are the classes challenging and the teachers highly qualified, but the atmosphere is one of joy and faithfulness. There’s no other school in this area that can claim to not only nourish the minds of its students, but the souls--something infinitely more important. The variety of activities it offers to all of us is innumerable: I’m able to go Mass in the mornings, NHS during study hall, cross country after school, and retreat team on the weekends. I will be grateful for the academic advantages I have obtained from this school for the rest of my life, and when I look back I know I’ll be able to see St. Joe’s as the platform that lead me to any success I will encounter."
"Before attending SJCA I was skeptical about the advantages that the institution provided. Now, in my third year of college, I realize that St. Joe’s successfully prepared me for a rigorous workload and intense studying. My transition into college was not very difficult because my coursework in high school was geared toward prepping me for college. St. Joe’s also allowed me to compete in athletics without compromising my education and receive recognition that could not have been possible at other schools. Winning the Holy Rosary reward was one of the biggest highlights of my high school career. The award showed that my athletic ability was complimented by an exceptional education. St. Joe’s prepares students for a successful future and opens doors to an array of opportunities. My time at SJCA has allowed me to attend a top 10 liberal arts college and I am forever grateful for the work done by staff and those affiliated with the Academy."
"I feel safe to pray and profess my faith. Every morning I walk into a faith filled community where I am free to grow closer to God and to my classmates. I feel safe to learn in an environment where I can ask questions without feeling uncomfortable if I don’t understand. The teachers and staff at SJCA are always there to support me and help me succeed. I feel safe to be myself. At SJCA everyone is different but can feel comfortable expressing themselves in their own way. We accept and care for each other. I feel safe to try new things. SJCA offers music, art, theater, sports, clubs, and many different service opportunities. There is always something for me to be involved in. I feel safe in our school. SJCA is a place filled with people that I can count on and trust. I know that if I ever need something there are teachers and staff that are always there for me. I feel blessed to be part of the SJCA family."
