Saint Joseph Academy, Adrian MI

1896-2012

St. Joseph Academy was a Catholic school sponsored by the Adrian Dominican Sisters in Adrian, MI. Over its 115 years of education, it had many configurations, including girls' boarding school, high school, elementary & middle school, as well as being the first home to the Montessori preprimary and toddler programs. St. Joseph Academy welcomed children of all faiths and all ethnic/cultural backgrounds, fostering academic excellence, service to the community and authentic leadership.

2/6/12--It is with great sadness that the Adrian Dominican Sisters announce that St. Joseph Academy, both the elementary program and the Montessori Children's House, will close at the end of the 2011-2012 school year. Despite the best efforts of the school staff and committed, generous parents and donors, we have been unable to balance our budget or stem the tide of decreasing enrollment. Be assured that our faculty and staff will continue to offer the quality education you have come to expect from SJA through the end of the school year. We will do everything needed to ensure an ease of transition to students' newly chosen schools and programs. Let us keep each other in prayer as we grieve this loss.

Mission: St. Joseph Academy educates and prepares children for life by providing a personalized learning experience in a nurturing and spiritual environment.
