Town & Style: On the Cover!
St. Joseph’s Academy’s new ‘Weidert Center for Integrated Science’ was on the cover of Town & Style! SJA’s 23,000 square feet of campus enhancements, including new visual arts studios and the “Spence Shine Shack” student success center in the newly-named Sisters of St. Joseph Humanities Hall, are included in the cover story.
“The renovations are a reflection of the school’s unique approach to education, which dates back to its establishment in 1840 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet.
“One of the sisters’ charisms is to always be moving toward the more,” Karen Davis notes. “With these new facilities, we can keep that philosophy in action at the academy.”
“Our students have everything they need to spark their interest in STEM,” says Regina Mooney, Ph.D., SJA president. “Oftentimes, girls aren’t mentored toward pursuing the sciences. We want to make sure they have the opportunity to explore these subjects.”
Construction began in 2019 thanks to the support of donors, including the estate of alumna Barbara Weidert (’47), which gifted the school $3.5 million."
