Without the support of our donors, St. Joseph Hill would not be the outstanding institution it is today. Our donors have funded student scholarships, supported teaching innovation, financed major capital improvements, and helped lay a strong foundation for Hill’s future. For over one hundred years, St. Joseph Hill Academy has set the standard for outstanding K-12 education. We are proud to educate students who are prepared to face the future with faith, hope, determination, and conviction that they will make a difference in the world. We reflect on how far we have come, from our founding in 1919, to the outstanding and widely respected educational institution we are today. We credit the dedicated Daughters of Divine Charity, our outstanding alumni, students, parents, administration, board, faculty and staff, and corporate partners for our success. However, none of this would be possible without the support of our loyal donors. There is no better day to maximize your impact than on the SJHA Giving Day, and … Our Specially Designed Challenges will help you make the most of your annual gift.
