About Us

The St. Joseph Catholic Academy is a nonprofit corporation providing a PK-12 education ministry of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kansas City- St. Joseph and formed in collaboration among the St. Joseph parishes of Cathedral of St. Joseph, St. Francis Xavier, St. James, St. Patrick, St Mary's , St. Rose of Lima and Our Lady of Guadalupe. 

“The purpose of the Academy is to be a witness to the values and commitment of the Catholic Church to excellence in providing a superior learning environment to every student at every campus,” said Ann Lachowitzer, president of the St. Joseph Catholic Academy. 

All five schools will continue to operate as individual campuses within the SJCA structure: St. Gianna Early Childhood Center, Cathedral School, St. Francis Xavier Catholic School, St. James Catholic School and Bishop LeBlond High School.
