Scholarship

Excellence in Scholarship

Scholarship is the second pillar of Saint Joseph's Catholic Academy. A school-wide commitment to excellence, combined with encouragement from administrators, faculty and peers, sets apart our approach to academics at Saint Joseph’s.

Academic Curriculum
Our academic curriculum is rigorous and relevant.  It is designed to deliver a complete education, emphasizing personal excellence in mind, body and spirit. Our teachers use student-centered teaching strategies that encourage exploration, critical thinking, and the development of advanced writing and oral presentation skills.  Students graduate prepared to succeed at leading colleges.

College and Career Counseling
Saint Joseph's faculty and staff actively help our students develop the skills needed to navigate the transition from high school to college life.  Saint Joseph's students get hands on preparation for SAT and ACT testing.  As part of retreat days and embedded course sequences, students review college information, learn the ins and outs of the college application process, and try out interview techniques.  Further, students explore careers and college majors, with the goal of identifying those that most readily match with personal interests, educational plans, and life goals.
