  • Hailey Meersman ’13: Teacher of the Month

    Ms. Hailey Meersman ’13 (Math Department) is the St. Louis Post-Dispatch “Teacher of the Month!” She was nominated by Lily ’23, who shares, “she goes above and beyond to make her class an enjoyable learning place. I can always count on [her] to cheer me up as she always has a smile from ear to ear.”

    “Her approach to teaching an oftentimes avoided subject is bolstering confidence in every student; not only confidence in math, but in themselves. “I try to make each lesson interesting, so that each student, no matter their passion level for mathematics, feels engaged and excited to come to class each day,” she said. “And I try to ensure they know I am happy to support them in whatever ways they need.”

  • #MeetTheAngels: Frankie ‘23

    This fall, SJA is asking current students about their decision to attend St. Joe, how they feel about going to an all-girls school, what they would like to share about the Academy with future Angels, and more.

    Frankie, a sophomore who attended Wildhorse and Crestview Middle Schools, recently transferred to St. Joe. So far, she has joined Spanish Honor Society and Spirit Club.

    Frankie wants prospective families to know that “St. Joe is the perfect place to expand your horizons. I am beyond grateful for the wide variety of clubs and classes that have been offered to me in my short time here.”

  • Golf in the News

    Seniors Drew Nienhaus and Nicole Rallo were recently featured in West News Magazine.

    "St. Joseph’s Academy seniors Drew Nienhaus and Nicole Rallo ended their high school golf careers just like they began it – as state champions.

    Nienhaus and Rallo helped the Angels record a record fifth consecutive state high school championship. This was the school’s first year in Class 4 as the state moved from two classes to four.

    The pair join Grace Aromando, a 2019 graduate, as the only four-time state winners for the Angels.

    “That was a big goal of theirs,” St. Joseph’s coach Carol Fromuth said. “They didn’t talk much about it but we are all on the same page. They deserved it and they got it. I’m so happy for the both of them.”'

  • 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."

  • Campus Ministry Book of Remembrance

    Throughout the month of November, we remember all those who have gone ahead of us into eternity. SJA Campus Ministry invites you to share the names of your loved ones who have passed over the past year, so that we can add them to our Book of Remembrance. 

    Jesus said to the crowds:
    "Everything that the Father gives me will come to me,
    and I will not reject anyone who comes to me,
    because I came down from heaven not to do my own will
    but the will of the one who sent me.
    And this is the will of the one who sent me,
    that I should not lose anything of what he gave me,
    but that I should raise it on the last day.
    For this is the will of my Father,
    that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him
    may have eternal life,
    and I shall raise him on the last day."
    John 6: 37-40
