Application Process

The St. Joseph's Academy Admissions Council recognizes that students are not defined by one area alone. The Council uses a holistic approach for admissions, considering the student's classroom performance in 7th and 8th grades, standardized test scores and their activities and involvement. All students interested in applying to St. Joseph’s Academy should fill out the online application, complete the student essay and schedule a Family Meeting. The application process typically begins after the student completes her Shadow Visit. Please click here for more information on scheduling a Shadow Visit.
