Mission Statement


Conducted by the Marist Brothers of the Schools and serving the children of the lower Rio Grande Valley, Saint Joseph Academy provides religious and moral formation and a college preparatory education in the tradition of the Roman Catholic Church. 

It endeavors to form young men and women who will succeed in university studies, who know and love Jesus, and who actively participate in the worship and mission of the Church, including the Church’s preferential option for the poor.

SJA creates a community of lifelong, faith-filled learners who are prepared to take their places as enlightened, educated members of a complex, diverse society.

SJA's Marist Community is committed to fostering excellence in the development of mind, body, and spirit through a partnership made up of families, faculty, school board and staff,  offering a challenging curriculum, infused with Gospel values, that engages an academically diverse student body.
