Battle of the Books
Battle of the Books- Middle and High School
The team reads 20 books chosen by the Wisconsin Educational Media & Technology Association. The team meets during lunch throughout the fall and winter. Students read the books deeply so that they retain information about plot, character, theme, setting, and other elements. It culminates in a statewide, online “battle” in February to find which teams have absorbed and retained the books the most. Battle of the books builds a love of reading, encourages students to read books they might not have chosen, engages students in an academic team competition, connects schools and teachers across the state and is lots of fun! Last year, our Middle School team placed 2nd our 123 teams!
Skiing & Snowboarding Club

St. Joseph Catholic Academy wants to welcome you to Skiing and Snowboarding Club! The club is a comfortable and open setting for those who are passionate about skiing and snowboarding to socialize and enjoy the sport.

If We Shadows
If We Shadows - High School
If We Shadows is an after-school extracurricular student-centric theatrical troupe run by Mr. Edward Sheehan and Ms. Melissa Tolner. Employing their academic and artistic experience in Shakespeare Studies, the pair rehearse Shakespeare plays for the express purpose of student growth as artists through performance. While minimal costumes and props are used, these things, as well as set, are considered largely unnecessary as the language and story itself becomes the star and ultimate focus. Students are taught the methodology and approach used by actors and acting companies that were contemporaries of Shakespeare in the Early Modern period. This year’s performance of Macbeth had rehearsals commencing in November for shows beginning in early March. Students meet from 3:00 until 4:30 from four to five days a week to this end.
Mass Choir & Alter Service

Mass is an an important part of the SJCA experience. It is a time to to come together in worship, adoration and prayer. The experience and impact of attending Mass is deepened with the active participation by our students.
