Preparing for the Future

High School

High school is the culmination of the SJCA learning journey. During these crucial four years, students explore a wide variety of classes and activities to discover their strengths, master essential skills, and prepare for college. Our challenging curriculum provides diverse course offerings to meet all students’ needs.

At SJCA, opportunities abound for participation and leadership in student government, athletics, the fine arts, and clubs. Due to our supportive environment, most SJCA students are involved in several extracurricular activities. Our football players sing and dance in the school musical, and our musicians serve on student government.

Each year our students are not just creating an academic transcript but are also developing a social and spiritual awareness through meaningful service experiences, annual retreats, and theological classroom discourse.

The SJCA graduate is a lifelong, creative learner, with the work ethic, intellectual integrity and moral compass to approach adulthood fully equipped for an ever-changing world.  Our hard working students are rewarded with strong standardized test scores, matriculation into the colleges of their choice and significant scholarship dollars.
