St. Joseph's Academy

St. Joseph’s Academy provides young men with a solid educational foundation, empowering graduates to assume positions of leadership and service.

St. Joseph’s Academy, a premier Catholic secondary school, has been inspiring young men to achieve academic, cultural, and sporting excellence since it opened its doors in 1958. Originally a school to educate Catholic boys, it quickly embraced students from all religions and walks of life.

In its early days, the school was just one building that housed the students, office, and science lab. Gradually, the campus grew to accommodate more and more students, and today it includes numerous classrooms, a computer lab, a physical education facility, a science lab, a library, and administrative offices. The school has a steelband, a glee club, and an annual fine arts competition.

“Annual donations from the Mill Reef Fund have helped us purchase school furniture and student lockers, air-conditioning units, and a printer. They’ve also financed an upgrade to the student restroom and a new staff restroom, repair of our classroom windows, and replacement of classroom roof tiles. We greatly appreciate the generosity of our Mill Reef friends.”

– Rudolph Davis, Principal

St. Joseph’s 246 students excel both academically and athletically. Students have won numerous regional Caribbean Secondary Education (CSEC) accolades, as well as national awards in an essay competition, an impromptu oratorical contest, and a secondary school debate. The school’s basketball team won the 2023 national inter-schools’ basketball championship.

Volunteerism is encouraged at the school, and the Rotary-sponsored Interact Club has donated laptops to the school, cleaned up beaches, collected garbage, and planted an Interact Peace Pole to promote peace among youth.
