College Representatives

St. Joseph’s Academy is a private, Catholic high school for girls in St. Louis, Missouri, sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. Our mission is to provide quality Catholic education for young women in an environment that challenges them to grow in faith, knowledge, and respect for self and others. Our community expects these young women to make a profound impact in the world.

Underlying all aspects of school life are the Core Values of the Academy that have served to inspire generations of distinctive women:
  • We believe in a balanced approach to developing the whole woman.
  • We encourage leadership and influence through action.
  • We call forth spiritual courage and confidence.
  • We cultivate intellectual distinction.
  • We foster the desire to serve.
  • We expect excellence.
Our senior class averages 110-130 students with 99% attending four-year colleges and universities.

Visit Options

For the 2021-2022 school year, SJA will host college representatives both in-person before/during the school day and virtually after school.

In-person visits will take place on designated days either before school (7:30 a.m. - 8:10 a.m.), or during SJA’s two lunch periods (most commonly 11:30 a.m. - 12:20 p.m.). 

Virtual visits will be held on designated days from 3:00 p.m. - 3:45 p.m. and will be open to students and families from SJA, as well as two other local high schools (Collegiate School of Medicine and Bioscience and KIPP St. Louis High School). College representatives will each present briefly (~15 minutes) to the whole group and then be available to answer student questions specific to their institution in a breakout room.

All visits (both in-person and virtual) can be scheduled through our calendar on the SCOIR platform.

All St. Joseph’s Academy students are welcome and encouraged to attend college rep visits.

Visit Policy

To ensure appropriate COVID-19 safety measures, SJA will be hosting both in-person and virtual college visits and information sessions throughout the 2021-2022 school year.
  • Each summer, SJA’s college advisors cultivate a list of potential college visits that takes the full breadth and depth of our students' talents, interests, and aspirations into consideration. The team works throughout the summer months to schedule over 100 admissions visits throughout the school year. We see this as a critical point of contact between students, families, and colleges.
  • College visits are highly promoted through e-mail blasts, social media posts, Canvas course updates, intercom and community announcements, as well as daily posting on television monitors in Shanahan Commons and outside the Main Office.
    • All students, regardless of class year, are encouraged to sign up and attend both in-person and virtual visits options.
  • SJA college advisors communicate with each admissions representative to ensure appropriate equipment and technology set up for their presentations whether in-person, or virtual.
  • In-person visits will take place in a socially responsible way with masking enforced for both students and college representatives.
To schedule an in-person, or virtual visit, please visit SCOIR to view availability and sign-up for a time to meet with our students.

If you need assistance, please contact Ms. Christine Holladay, Director of College Advising, at cholladay@sja1840.org or (314) 394-4229.
