Robotics

JoeBotics, St. Joseph’s Academy’s robotics program, was established during the 2013-2014 school year. JoeBotics has competed at the FIRST Technical Challenge level for 9 years running. Each year FTC presents a new game for the season, and the team works together to design, build, program, and test a robot to meet the challenges of the game. Due to popularity, the program expanded to include a second team during the 2021-2022 school year.

visual arts

The arts remain an integral part of our students’ learning, encouraging them to think critically and take risks. In 2020, our Visual Arts program expanded and was relocated to a dedicated space on the second floor. Three classrooms were designed specifically for the unique requirements of painting, drawing, ceramics, and more. At St. Joseph’s Academy, it is our desire to not only develop fine artists, but also to enhance an appreciation of the arts in all students.

Student 

"St. Joe will always hold a special place in my heart because of the tight-knit community that has helped me take on opportunities I could have never imagined. During my senior year at St. Joe, I went on a service trip and worked with an organization called Boys Hope Girls Hope in Guatemala City. This was a life-changing experience, changing my perspective and helping me grow as a person. It is truly something I will never forget. I would choose St. Joe again in a heartbeat. I have built life-long friendships and have grown into a strong, independent leader, and it’s a place I can call home beyond my four years I have been here."

"One of the core values of St. Joe is to 'foster a desire to serve' and in the description of that core value there is a scripture from the Gospel of Luke which says: 'To whom much is given, much is required'. I went to Kenya for the first time in 2012 and was exposed to the vast number of vulnerable children who had few resources to help them break out of the cycle of poverty. That started my journey of recognizing my immense privilege and figuring out what would be required. In 2017, I started the nonprofit, BEAM Kenya, to equip children to overcome adversity through education and psychosocial support."

"Given the many all-girls Catholic high school options for the St. Louis area, St. Joseph's Academy has been the perfect fit for our two daughters.  St. Joe not only offers academic excellence, but has also taught our girls self-confidence, leadership, and dealing with adversity.  We have been so impressed with the highest quality, faith-based education that our girls have received while also learning and living the "Not I, But We" values that are St. Joe."
