St. Joseph's Academy has many traditions that are important to our community and deeply rooted in our history. These traditions at St. Joseph's Academy date back to 1836 and the six young women stirred by the spirit of Not I, But We. As the school has grown over the years, this community spirit continues to invigorate our strong and supportive SJA family. From freshmen to seniors to alums, from parents to alumnae parents, we teachers and administrators, we are all treasurers of the precious TRADITIONS of St. Joseph's Academy.
Today's students, faculty, administration, parents, Alumnae and Alumnae Parents are guardians of the St. Joe traditions. Together we protect our heritage as we add new chapters to the SJA saga. Each family's personal experiences and individual commitments to St. Joe determine the depth and strength of this wonderful community. What joy there is to catch the SJA spirit and to share as a family the St. Joseph's Academy traditions!
