News from the SJA Counseling Department

It's not too early to start thinking about opportunities for summer enrichment activities for our students. 

There are many summer program opportunities available to give students a head start on investigating career and college possibilities.  Such programs can not only provide meaningful summer activities; they are also excellent options for building the college application résumé. 

Therefore, we would like to recommend a vast array of Summer Program Opportunities for High School Students. If you’re thinking about summer plans, please take a look at the programs presented here, and note that many of them have application deadlines early in 2018.

If you have any further questions, or would like more information, please contact any member of the Counseling Department. 

School counselors are pleased to have the opportunity to work with all of our students to help them have a happy, successful school year.  The  Fall 2017 Parent Letter gives information about the Counseling Department and the services offered to students and parents.  Please feel free to contact any member of the department if  you or your sons/daughters need help.

Saint Joseph Academy is a faith-based college preparatory school, grades 7-12, with a 100% college acceptance rate and a 150-year tradition of exceptionally high educational and moral standards. Since the end of the Civil War, our school has been providing Catholic education to children of the lower Rio Grande Valley and Mexico, helping to prepare young men and women for university studies and life beyond.

The spirit of St. Joe is very special. For 150 years that spirit has lived on through our school, our faith and our mission.
