Thank you for your interest in Mount Saint Joseph Academy. Founded and sponsored by the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Boston, Mount Saint Joseph Academy promotes academic excellence, cultivates respect for all people, fosters unity and reconciliation, and educates young women for compassionate leadership and service. This is the legacy of Mount Saint Joseph Academy.
As a private Catholic high school for young women, established in 1885, Mount Saint Joseph Academy offers a rigorous college preparatory program, including numerous Honors Level and Advanced Placement courses, along with online classes through the Virtual High School. Our academic program is complemented by extensive extra-curricular offerings in athletics and the performing arts. Perhaps our most notable characteristic is that we are a vibrant learning community committed “to cultivating the intellect and making a special training of the heart.”
Mount Saint Joseph Academy and Trinity Catholic will unite to form a new co-educational Catholic high school. The new school will be sponsored by the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Boston. MSJA and Trinity will combine their strengths and rich traditions to become Saint Joseph Preparatory High School, which will open in Brighton in the fall of 2012. Please read the press release or visit the Saint Joseph Prep Web site for more details.
We invite you to explore our Web site for all the information you need to begin the application process. All candidates must submit an application and take the High School Placement Test. We encourage prospective students to participate in our Visitor Program.
Please feel free to contact the Admissions Office by phone or send an inquiry via e-mail. We look forward to hearing from you. You may also visit us in person by attending one of our Welcome Wednesday mini open houses. Parents, middle and elementary school teachers and principals are welcome to attend in order to experience first-hand everything the school has to offer.
Ms. Mary Esposito
Director of Admissions
