For 150 years, St. Joseph’s Academy has stood as a pillar of excellence in the Baton Rouge community. Founded in 1868 by the Sisters of St. Joseph, this premier Catholic high school for young women is a place where the bonds of sisterhood run deep, sacred threads that connect our alumnae across generations and around the world.
Our nearly 10,000 graduates are leaders in business, industry, academia, government, their churches and communities.
They’re advocates, volunteers, wives, mothers and grandmothers.
They serve the dear neighbor, always as women for others.
, academic excellence
and personal growth
– the three pillars of the Academy’s mission statement – are at the very heart of who we are.
As we celebrate 150 years, our history is rich, our present is vibrant, our future is bright.
