St. Joseph Academy

Faith-based approach to education

St. Joseph Academy’s faith-based approach to education meets and frequently exceeds expectations for an academically exceptional education that equips students to live their Christian beliefs in a world often beset with injustice, weak compassion and rampant overindulgence.

A four-year college preparatory school, St. Joseph Academy in St. Augustine was established in 1866, making it the oldest continuously operating Catholic high school in Florida. It is accredited by the National Catholic Education Association, the Florida Catholic Conference and the Florida High School Athletic Association.

The school’s small class size gives students the advantage of a highly desirable student-to-teacher ratio of 14-to-1. The 23 faculty professionals have an average of 13.5 years of experience, and 60 percent have advanced degrees.

The curriculum at St. Joseph’s typically includes four credits of theology, English, math and science; three credits of social studies and foreign language; and one credit each of physical education and the practical or performing arts. Four credits of electives complete the required 28 credits for graduation. Honors courses in English, science, social science, math, foreign language and drama and advanced placement courses in calculus, statistics, studio art, psychology, American government and world history allow students to pursue a variety of interests and career choices.

These factors combine to give the 2018 St. Joseph Academy graduating class the distinction of seeing 100 percent of its graduates enrolling in a higher education program for the 18th consecutive year.

Built on a solid foundation of Catholic principles and faith traditions, St. Joseph Academy is dedicated to developing well-rounded graduates equipped to meet the challenges of today’s world at home, in the workplace and in the global community while following Christ. A close-knit nurturing environment exists in the classroom, on the athletic field, extracurricular activities and through every aspect of school life.

The school’s vision is that graduates will be morally responsible adults “with a well-developed commitment to social justice, an enhanced faith in Jesus Christ and ready to face the 21st Century historically grounded by a rigorous educational experience.” The decision-making process at St. Joseph Academy seeks to provide an equal opportunity for each student to become a knowledgeable, self-directed, compassionate Christian, able to face the challenges of the future with faith, hope and love.”
