With over 65 Years of Eagles graduating our academy to achieve great things in High School, University and in their lives and careers, The SJA Alumni Association exists to keep that strong community flourishing.
So whether you graduated from St. Andrew, Our Lady of Good Counsel, St. John the Baptist or St. John’s Academy, you are part of our family!
Are you are former student, family, friend, parishioner or staff member of SJA? We’d love to hear what you’re up to!
The 2020-21 school year marked St. John’s Academy’s 65th Anniversary. The SJA School Advisory Board commemorated this milestone by launching an ambitious campaign to ensure the continued success and growth of our Academy.
Our Campaign is split into two distinct programs: (1) A Capital Improvement Fund and (2) An Annual Fund.
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.
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.
How Can I Support the Campaign?
Whether you’re an alumni of St. John’s, a parent or grandparent of a current or former student, or a friend of the SJA Community, there are many ways to contribute.
