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.
At St. Joseph’s Academy, we offer a place for your daughter to master the subjects of school while at the same time learn about herself.
Since our founding in 1840 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, we have been committed to developing values-driven women leaders. Grounded in faith and the spirit of the school motto of “Not I, But We,” generations of SJA students have graduated well prepared for higher education and for adulthood.
Our approach is one of challenging and enriching each student through rigorous coursework and co-curricular programs while modeling leadership based on compassion and respect. The small student-staff ratio of 10:1 emphasizes SJA’s personal commitment to each young woman.
