Angel Parent Organization

We are grateful for your interest in the Angel Parent Organization.

As an SJA  parent or guardian, participation in your Angel’s education and high school experience is essential.  

With parent-daughter Masses and events, service opportunities, activities with Angel Moms and Angel Dads, there are many ways to volunteer throughout the year and be connected and serve with the mission of St. Joseph’s Academy. The Angel Parent Organization (APO) offers parents, guardians, and families the opportunity to fulfill the mission of St. Joseph’s Academy through volunteerism and engagement. There are many opportunities for parents to get involved and support the school. Opportunities can fit all interests and schedules.

Angel Dads

The SJA Angel Dads represent the fun and fellowship that it means to be a father or father figure at SJA. Angel Dads have the opportunity to volunteer at SJA, participate in social events, and help plan and play in the annual St. Joe Classic Golf and Pickleball Tournament.

Athletics

We believe that the opportunity for participation in interscholastic athletics is a vital part of the educational experience. Such participation is a privilege that carries with it responsibilities to the activity, school, student body, community, and to the students themselves. We have opportunities for our Angel Parents to help out with events such as working the door at tournaments, helping with parking, and much more.

Please check back later this summer to sign up to volunteer with Angel Athletics and get involved with this great program.

Angel Moms

The SJA Angel Moms represent a great way for you to get involved and support your daughter’s high school years. There are many great ways to volunteer, be part of your daughter’s four-year journey, and enjoy the fellowship of other SJA parents. The Angel Moms also spearhead the school's largest fundraiser, An Evening with the Angels.

Diversity, Culture, and Climate

The Diversity, Culture, and Climate Department of St. Joseph's Academy supports the school in living out its motto, "Not I, But We." It seeks to create a welcoming environment for all students and families within the Academy. APO members who would like to volunteer with DCC can support our whole school events that offer opportunities for students and their families to explore various areas of St. Louis, interact with aspects of different cultures, partner with small businesses, and create fun opportunities for learning and engagement. 

Please check back later this summer for volunteer opportunities.

An Evening with the Angels

An Evening with the Angels is a vital fundraising resource needed to continue St. Joseph’s Academy’s mission of providing a quality Catholic education for young women in an environment that challenges them to grow in faith, knowledge, and respect for self and others.  Our annual dinner auction has an impressive history, with last year’s event being the most successful in the school’s history. Parent volunteers are crucial to our success, whether they volunteer on the committee, sign up to help with Auction Work Day, or assist with setup! We also need over 50 adult volunteers for the night of the event and appreciate any parent who chooses to work that evening. Thank you for being the most important component of our success!
