Experiences Beyond The Classroom


The SJA Signature Programs, launching Spring 2022, is an opportunity for current 9th grade students to engage with leaders in designated fields and participate in seminars and community activities which will enhance their SJA experience. Starting in the 2022-2023 school year, incoming 9th graders will be able to apply. 


The three pathways to choose from include:

  • Arts & Humanities
  • International Leadership
  • Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)


Depending on the pathway a student chooses, they will be required to take core subjects, program-related seminars, conduct research, hold active memberships in program-related organization and take part in professional shadowing and mentor programs. It will be rolled out to 9th graders in the Spring 2022, and each year a new cohort will be added. The SJA Signature Programs will eventually be open to all 9-12 grade students.
