St. Joseph’s Academy (SJA) is a Catholic, college-preparatory school serving girls in grades 9-12. SJA has been named a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence four times.

SJA was founded in 1868 by the Sisters of St. Joseph. For 154 years, this ministry of the Congregation of St. Joseph has stood as a pillar of excellence in the Baton Rouge community. SJA is a place where relationships are strengthened and young girls become women of faith, hope and love.

SJA’s graduates are leaders in business, industry, academia, government, their churches and communities. They’re advocates, volunteers, wives, mothers and grandmothers. They serve the dear neighbor as women for others.

The mission of St. Joseph’s Academy is to educate young women as responsible and unifying members of the world community. In the spirit and charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph, St. Joseph’s Academy offers opportunities for faith development in the Catholic tradition, academic excellence, and personal growth.
