Letter from the Director

Here at St. Joseph’s Academy, we appreciate your interest in our school and welcome you to the admissions page of our website. Since 1840, St. Joseph’s Academy has been educating young women with a caring faculty who emphasize progress and personal growth academically, spiritually, socially, physically and morally.
The Admissions Department hopes that you enjoy learning about St. Joseph’s Academy online and welcomes you to take the next step and come in for a visit.
Shadowing a current student is the best way to experience St. Joseph’s Academy. Eighth grade students are encouraged to shadow in the fall months while seventh graders are welcome to shadow in the spring of their seventh grade year. 
There are several steps throughout the application process, including a family interview and a student essay. Please call us for more information or to schedule a visit.  I can be reached at mwade@sja1840.org or directly at (314) 394-4321. You may also contact Cori Castellano Sallaberry ‘96, Associate Director of Admissions, at csallaberry@sja1840.org or (314) 394-4319. I look forward to meeting you and your family.
Michael Wade
Director of Admissions
"The second great commandment of Jesus echoes in the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, the exhortation to "reach out to the Dear Neighbor." Jesus would have us love our neighbor as ourselves; to do this, our students develop a love for self. Our responsibility as a community is twofold: first, to help our students grow in self-respect as well as respect for others, and second, to provide opportunities and to challenge our students to serve others at school and in the larger world."

    Summer at SJA: Acrylic Painting

    5th-8th Grade

    This camp will explore various methods of acrylic painting, under the guidance of a self-taught local artist. We will create abstract marbling effects using poured fluid acrylic paints applied to small canvases and/or wooden structures. We will also recreate a mystical landscape by following along to a Bob Ross instructional video. Participants will discover the joy of painting by embracing the beauty of mistakes, happy accidents, and unintended results. No prior painting or art experience is necessary!
