Saint Joseph Academy is a faith-based college preparatory school, grades 7-12, with a 100% college acceptance rate and a 150-year tradition of exceptionally high educational and moral standards. Since the end of the Civil War, our school has been providing Catholic education to children of the lower Rio Grande Valley and Mexico, helping to prepare young men and women for university studies and life beyond.

The spirit of St. Joe is very special. For 150 years that spirit has lived on through our school, our faith and our mission.
