    The Academy of St. Joseph at Washington Place is a new school refreshing the Catholic tradition of academic excellence by motivating and guiding students through a humanities-based curriculum characterized by the school's motto: Character, Competence, Compassion.
     
    The Academy of St. Joseph challenges students through a rigorous and enriched curriculum. Students are asked to become critical thinkers, collaborative problem-solvers, and global thinkers through a deep understanding of mathematics, science, and the humanities. In addition to the core academic program, daily instruction is offered in Spanish to all students giving them early exposure to another language. By the end of eighth grade students have mastered beginning conversational, writing, and reading, skills in Spanish. All students receive instruction in Art, Music, and Physical Education. Students in Lower School receive weekly instruction in Library Science and Chess. Upper School students have the opportunity to participate in an elective block, which allows them to explore their interests through a variety of course offerings.
     
    The Academy of St. Joseph admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin, or religious affiliation to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities of the school.
