St. Joseph’s Academy, a Pre-K to 8th grade ministry of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Lakeland, challenges each student to achieve academic excellence and to live the gospel message.
SJA is committed to excellence in education and ensuring an opportunity for every student to achieve to his or her fullest potential. Recognizing the uniqueness of each student as a child of God, St. Joseph's Academy embraces a holistic philosophy; which strives to develop the spiritual, intellectual, social, physical, cultural, and moral growth of each student in a Christ-centered environment.
We celebrate and encourage differences, learning preferences, and individual needs, building on strengths and developing weaknesses. The teachers use various teaching techniques, integrating state-of-the-art technology, to develop critical thinking skills, to meet academic expectations set by the Diocese of Orlando and the State of Florida, and to challenge each student so he or she will be prepared for the 21st century.
We encourage communication and embrace parental involvement. We are proud of our positive family climate and morale and of our talented, certified and caring professionals.
Our door is always open for a visit.
Yours in Christ,
Reverend Ramon Bolatete, Pastor
Lana Swartzwelder, Principal
