Over the past 80 years, St. Joseph Academy has been forming remarkable leaders in the Lakeland community.

We provide our students with a Christ-centered foundation for a better tomorrow.

Our Mission

St. Joseph Academy, a Christ-centered Catholic community, rooted in faith, knowledge and values, inspires students to live the gospel message in school, the community, and the world and to achieve academic excellence through relevant and challenging curriculum.

Love the teachers and staff. They are very caring. This school produces highly educated children with wonderful morals. They care about your children and you feel the kindness and love. Our 3 year old granddaughter loves to be there and loves her teachers and her friends. I love that God is the center of St. Joseph Academy and no one can take that away.
