Throughout SJA Mission Month, the Angels lived out "Not I, But We" by raising awareness and collecting funds to support clinics, food kitchens and other projects of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet in Peru and Uganda, as well as agencies in our local community.
On November 20, the seniors came to campus for “Mission Day.” The day included a beautiful Mass, the crowning of the Penny Queen, the infamous Faculty Show and the Music for the Missions student concert.
The Academy is proud to announce that this year, our Mission Month total was $29,359 and that the Class of 2021, represented by Libby Schuman, took home the Penny Queen Crown! This total includes funds raised and "service bucks," that each student recorded throughout the month.

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.
