Graduate Profile

The Graduate Profile describes the student at the point of exit from St. Joseph’s Academy. 

1 Corinthians 12: 4-7
There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them for some benefit. To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit.

The Saint Joseph’s Academy graduate:
• Will manifest a Catholic Christian spirit, which reaches beyond herself, to serve the dear neighbor without distinction.
• Will be mindful of being in right relationship with God, self and others as a means of living out our motto: "Not I, but We". 
• Will respect the spirituality of all cultures; that is, hers will be an ecumenical spirit. 

Wisdom 7: 22-23
For within her wisdom is a spirit holy, unique, unsullied, lucid, invulnerable, benevolent, sharp, irresistible, beneficent, loving to all, steadfast, dependable and almighty.

The Saint Joseph’s Academy graduate:  
• Will manifest intellectual curiosity which will lead her to be a life-long learner.

• Will develop sensitivity to other cultures and the interpersonal skills needed to work with others.

Corinthians 3:9-11, 16-17
Sisters and Brothers, You are God’s building. According to the grace of God given to me, like a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another is building upon it. But each one must be careful how he builds upon it, for no one can lay a foundation other than the one that is there, namely, Jesus Christ. Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for the temple of God, which you are, is holy.

The Saint Joseph’s Academy graduate 
• Will respect her body as a precious gift from God and treat it accordingly.
• Will recognize the importance of eating healthy, keeping weight within an appropriate range, and maintaining a proper amount of physical exercise and getting the hours of sleep necessary for a well- functioning body. 
• Will walk with confidence which enables her to look another in the eye when speaking. 
• Will strive to maintain a balance between academics and co-curricular activities in order to put equal emphasis on sharpening both mind and body.
