Letter From the Director of Admissions

Dear Prospective Students and Families:

Welcome to Saint Joseph Academy! Choosing the right school for your family is a very important decision, which will impact the lives of you and your children in many important ways, now and in the future. Here at Saint Joseph Academy, we strive to develop the whole child: academically, socially, spiritually, emotionally and physically. Our approach offers academic excellence infused with Catholic values, all in accordance with the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Faith.

Families attending SJA come from all over North County San Diego, but also as far as away as San Diego, Temecula, and even Murrieta. Our families share common values and ideologies, thus resulting in a strong community that binds us all together. Students not only participate in a college preparatory academic education, but also have the opportunity to engage in various clubs, service opportunities and athletic programs. Our graduating students are academically prepared to go on to some of the finest colleges and universities in the country. They are grounded in their faith and are prepared to take on leadership roles that will advance their values in today's society. A challenging curriculum, traditional Catholic atmosphere, dedicated faculty, welcoming family community and building lifelong friendships are all hallmarks of SJA. Rich and varied extracurricular activities, as well as CIF sports programs, offer our students a unique experience, and truly there is something for everyone.

Our enrollment process begins with our paperless online application, which you can easily access by selecting the link on this page. Please feel free to contact me directly for more information or to schedule a tour at (760) 305-8505 or via my email at Our admissions team looks forward to helping you soon!

Sincerely in Christ,
Mr. Ryan Hanson
Director of Admissions
