  • Neighborhood Scavenger Hunt

    The great thing about being in NYC is using this wonderful city as a resource. Once a month, the Upper School has a "House" competition.

The House System has been a wonderful addition to our Upper School. The House System and Advisory are intended to give Upper School students a sense of community and to support the mission of the Academy of St. Joseph to educate the whole child.
