So we're going to channel some Bloodhound creativity.

Even though our favorite introductions happen face-to-face on campus, for the spring of 2020 we find ourselves in a new environment. The SJA community is praying for you and our world as we navigate the coronavirus pandemic, stay at home orders, and this global challenge.

That doesn't stop our excitement about future opportunities to see you in person!

We have some fun ideas for the weeks to come. For now, please submit questions you have here, and stay connected with our online resources.

Back to School Preview Night

Our annual Back to School Preview Night is for all our current families. Clubs and athletics work the event trying to get some new faces involved in campus life. Senior students address the parents during the assembly, and parents later follow their students’ schedules for a sneak peek into what teachers will be covering during the year. This is a great opportunity for new families to accompany some of our current families and a truly get a feel of what a typical day in the life of a Bloodhound looks like. 

Campus Tours

Students enrolled in feeder schools have the opportunity to visit the campus with other bloodhounds from 9:00 am-12:30 pm. Visitors hear from our administrators and students, tour the campus, participate in classes, and join us for lunch. If your school is not scheduled to visit our campus, please email the Office of Admissions at csolis@sja.us to sign up for a date to attend as a Bloodhound for a Day.

Open House

This is the perfect opportunity for prospective middle school and high school students and families to learn more about all that St. Joseph Academy has to offer! Open House is scheduled the first week of November.

We invite interested students to shadow current students during the fall and spring semesters. To set up a shadow day, please call the Office of Admissions to set up a date. Send us an email requesting details at csolis@sja.us The student will be matched with a current student according to interests and will spend most of the day (8:15 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.) with that student and attend classes with them. This is a great opportunity to see what it's like to be a student at St. Joseph Academy!

Be a Bloodhound for a Day

New Bloodhound Orientation and Family BBQ:

Get a chance to get to know your teachers, see your classroom, and take a tour of our stunning campus. Meet other students as you learn about school procedures and uniform regulations, school clubs and sports organizations. New Bloodhounds... stay tuned for a SAVE THE DATE coming soon!

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! 

"When I arrived for my tour, I was immediately greeted into the beautiful campus with smiles and welcoming words. I got to meet some staff and students who were all so kind... at Saint Joe, it felt as if people cared about more than increasing their student population. They genuinely care about your well-being and making you feel included in the Bloodhound family; and of course, your faith."
