This is a wonderful school that prepares children well for high school and life in general. The academics and religion program are tops. We have a caring faculty, and the families that attend the school are friendly and supportive. There are plans to build a gym and more classrooms for the middle school soon. The sports program is run by parents.

SJA is a great school, great families and great focus on religion. Children here need a sports program. Religion is #1 here, Academics is #2. I attended this school for 8 years and felt socially unaware and naive once I entered a public/independent school. Offering more opportunities to mix with the outside world would have been helpful.

This school is a good school for the growing mind, and allows for a easy start into the educational field. The teacher's are very friendsly but strict at the same time. (A good combo if you ask me). I attented St. Joe's for eight years, and now I attend college and owe every bit of my academic achievements to that school. In other word's it's remarkable, and you will grow up never forgetting it.


Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
