Application & Transfer Process

Thank you for your interest in St. Joseph’s Academy. 

St. Joseph's Academy recognizes that students are not defined by one area alone. The Admissions Council uses a holistic approach that considers the student's classroom performance in 7th and 8th grades, standardized test scores, and their activities and involvement. The application process typically begins after the student completes her Shadow Visit. Please click here for more information on shadow visits.

If you would like to submit an application or receive information about how to apply, please contact Dianne Dunning-Gill '88, Director of Enrollment Management, by phone at (314) 394-4321, or by email at

Application Checklist

Once you have completed a shadow visit or school tour, and have decided to apply to St. Joseph's Academy, the next step will be to begin the formal application process. 

Applications will open October 15, 2023. 


First, applicants for the 2024-2025 school year will complete the St. Joseph's Academy online application through SchoolAdmin.  This application will create an online portal, which you can log into to check the progress of your application. A checklist will show you next steps and any additional requirements that may be needed to be considered for admission. Applications will open on October 15th, and the deadline for the 2024-25 school year is December 1st, 2023.  

If you are interested in applying for grades 9-11 for the 2023-24 school year, please contact the Admissions Office

Family Meeting

Next, after applicants have completed a shadow visit and have completed the application, family meetings should be scheduled. Your daughter and at least one parent/guardian must attend. The scheduling calendar will be found on your Admissions Checklist in SchoolAdmin. 

Student Questionnaire

Applicants will be asked to complete a four-question Student Questionnaire found on the Admissions Checklist in SchoolAdmin . Detailed instructions for submission are available in the online portal. 


Each applicant must provide a full academic transcript to St. Joseph's Academy. The Transcript Request Form can be found on your checklist in the online portal or in the Transfer Students section of this page.

Once these steps have been completed, your daughter can be considered for admission. Families are traditionally notified of  acceptance on Acceptance Day, January 26, 2024.
