Spence Shine Shack

St. Joseph’s Academy is proud to open our new student success center, the “Spence Shine Shack,” which supports the various learning needs and styles of all our students. This new program will serve our girls with tools and furnishings that support active learning, collaborative work and independent study. Every girl will be able to utilize this new program and space, which is designed to take them from where they are academically to where they can fully shine with their God-given talents.

Two former classrooms adjacent to the Library have been transformed into a collaborative learning room and an independent study space. This project was made possible by the generosity of the Dave and Suzie Sauer Spence ’82 Family and the generosity of many through our 2019 Auction Fund-A-Need. At the dedication of the spaces, Suzie noted the scripture passage from Mathew 5: 15-16, "You are the light of the world...So let your light shine," relating it to our school as we encourage all of our students’ light to shine.
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.
