St. Joseph Academy is expanding once again with the addition of 7th grade!

St. Joseph Academy is offering seventh grade in 2017 – 2018 (and eighth grade 2018 – 2019).  We want to offer an education where middle-school learners can continue a faith-based education. We’ve developed a strong curriculum to help our middle school students understand advanced math concepts, use the scientific method, and use critical thinking strategies when reading informational texts, fiction, and poetry.
