Friends of the Performing Arts (FOPA)
The Friends of the Performing Arts (FOPA) is a volunteer group of parents who work together throughout the year to enhance the student experience of SJCA performing arts programs.
The St. Joseph Athletic Association is a volunteer fundraising group which provides financial assistance to the SJCA athletic program. It is the goal of the Association to insure that all student athletes have quality uniforms and equipment so as to provide the best athletic experience. The Association neither sets nor implements athletic policy; it supplements funds provided by the school.
The Association was first formed in 1958 by a small group of parents and loyal supporters who recognized that the school’s budget could not realistically support the ever expanding needs of the athletic program. Since 1958, the Association has raised in excess of $1.5 million dollars to support the athletic programs at St. Joseph Catholic Academy.
The Athletic Association raises money necessary to enhance the athletic programs for young woman and men at St. Joseph Catholic Academy. Its fundraising activities raise the money to provide the items which would not otherwise be available to our athletes. Currently, the Association is committed to providing a minimum of $30,000.00 each year to pay direct costs of the interscholastic athletic programs.
