SJA 65th Anniversary

SJA logo - 65th Anniversary
The 2020/21 school year marks St. John’s Academy’s 65th Anniversary. The SJA School Advisory Board is commemorating this milestone by launching the SJA 65th Anniversary Campaign.

What is the SJA 65th Campaign?

The SJA 65th Campaign is a plan to build an endowment fund, split into two distinct programs: (1) An Annual Fund, and (2) A Capital Improvement Fund.

The SJA Annual Fund

While SJA has been fortunate to enjoy robust enrollment and a strong financial footing, the uncertainty of the prior year and the closures experienced by other local Catholic Schools has further emboldened us to be proactive and prepared for any unforeseen challenges that may present in the future.

SJA Capital Improvement Program

SJA has long been the beneficiary of the lovely Hillsdale campus that was bestowed to us by its founders and subsequent stewards over the past 65 years. The Board’s intention is to program a series of improvements to ensure that this generation hands off a strong physical plant and campus facilities to the Academy’s future students and leaders, while balancing short term improvements that will enhance our current community’s experience on campus.
