Join our community


The St. Joseph Catholic Academy Parent Association, Athletic Association, and Friends of the Performing Arts (FOPA) are groups of dedicated volunteers who organize and support a variety of activities and events throughout the year. We are grateful for the many volunteers who make these programs a success and we welcome new members to join us in support of our school.


 We welcome family participation through our Parent Association, and we encourage all members to volunteer and participate in school events. We believe that when families, school, and church work together, we can have a profound impact on the lives of our students.

Friends of the Performing Arts (FOPA)

The Friends of the Performing Arts (FOPA) is a volunteer group of parents who work together throughout the year to enhance the student experience of SJCA performing arts programs.


Athletics Association

The St. Joseph Athletic Association is a volunteer fundraising group which provides financial assistance to the SJCA athletic program.  It is the goal of the Association to insure that all student athletes have quality uniforms and equipment so as to provide the best athletic experience.  The Association neither sets nor implements athletic policy; it supplements funds provided by the school.


The Association was first formed in 1958 by a small group of parents and loyal supporters who recognized that the school’s budget could not realistically support the ever expanding needs of the athletic program.  Since 1958, the Association has raised in excess of $1.5 million dollars to support the athletic programs at St. Joseph Catholic Academy.


The Athletic Association raises money necessary to enhance the athletic programs for young woman and men at St. Joseph Catholic Academy.  Its fundraising activities raise the money to provide the items which would not otherwise be available to our athletes.  Currently, the Association is committed to providing a minimum of $30,000 each year to pay direct costs of the interscholastic athletic programs.

Principal Fundraising Events

  • Annual Century Dinner held in Spring.

  • Annual Golf Outing held the third Wednesday in July.

  • Banner Program
