Back to School Kick-Off

First day back to school can be a struggle when you've been away all summer... Saint Joseph Academy has a Back to School Kick-Off to get the ball going smoothly for the upcoming school year. We begin in Homeroom where students have the opportunity to reacquaint themselves with each other after not having seen each other all summer. For our new students, it's a good time to get adjusted to a new setting and to get to know new peers. Students follow their new schedules, meet their new teachers, review school policy and become familiar with any new changes, and we end the day with a spirit-filled assembly -ready to kick-off the new school year! 

Follow us on Instagram @sjaadmissions and stay tuned for updates!

"My feelings of the first day of middle school were probably no different than the average seventh grader. Fear of the unknown. Not knowing what to expect or understanding fully how this would be different than elementary caused a little trepidation on the first day of school. Much to my surprise, it was an easy transition and a year filled with great memories."
