Enrollment at St. Joseph Academy

School Enrollment

Welcome to St. Joseph Academy! We’re glad you’ve decided to learn more about our school and look forward to working with you and your child as members of our school family.

Enrollment applications for the 2021-2022 school year opened on February 1, 2021. School enrollment occurs every month between the 1st and the 20th – though sometimes it may be necessary to put your child on a waiting list if our classes are full.

We have created a step-by-step tutorial to help you navigate the online application process.
