We were very unhappy there. Im not sure of the testing methods because my son was always pegged as having issues but now that we left there are no issues at all. In fact he has tested as advanced. In my opinion they just didnt want to go the extra mile for the benefit of the child.

My child was not treated well by administration nor did my child receive a quality education. Not worth the money at all. In Jamestown, this is the school to avoid!

I have been a parent and volunteer at SJA for over 15 years and couldn't be prouder of the quality, commitment and tremendous outcomes that are emblematic of the school. My kids performed so well in middle school and high school because of both the academic and social standards to which they were held by the faculty and staff of SJA. SJA is a blessing to parents, students and our community.

SJA is above & beyond an exceptional school! As a teacher and current stay at home mom (who is not Catholic), sending my child(ren) to the Academy was just a given.. In fact, before my husband and I were married, this was already decided. The student teacher ratio is wonderful, as is the accelerated curriculum. Each night my child has school work, not too much, that is more enrichment than 'homework.' Our friends in the public schools do not have this. When I was working, I witness firsthand the quality of a SJA education when students would enter the 7th grade at the Middle School and it was a year of review for them!! As for the school community, it is family. Not just now, but forever. Yes, there is tuition, but that is nothing compared to what the children recieve. One last thing, my son LOVES school! He gets upset

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.
