3/13/2020—Currently in its 130th year, Saint Joseph Academy is the only all-girls Catholic high school in Cleveland, Ohio. They have just unveiled a multi-year capital campaign, “With Lifted Hearts,” that will raise funds enabling the school to move its campus forward for future generations. This campaign will help transform the bright minds of young women into the compassionate leaders of tomorrow’s global society.
President Mary Ann Corrigan-Davis ’71 shared, “Saint Joseph Academy’s vision for the 21st century is rooted in what has always defined and distinguished us as a school: we will support innovation and academic excellence in a community where faith thrives. Today, we stand at the forefront of exciting changes in high school education, making us a school of choice in the city we call home. The strength of our education is reflected in our strong enrollment and our students’ exceptional academic performance. Our growing student body and continued innovation means our beautiful Academy building no longer fully supports the number of students we teach or the collaborative, project-based education we provide.” She continued by stating, “This campaign is in response to a time of need—a time that demands compassionate female leaders who can create, innovate, and transform our world for the better. We have an extraordinary opportunity to ensure that Saint Joseph Academy’s most impactful years are still ahead.”
The planned campus renovations include new classrooms, expanding the Makerspace innovation lab to five times its current size, and additional space for athletic and performing arts programs plus a student commons.
