I garduated SJA in 2005 and the experience I had there was AMAZING! The diversity of the students and staff truly make SJA a great learning environment. I entered SJA shy, scared and inhibited and left as a strong, confident young woman ready for the world. While I was a student, my favorite part was reachiong out to the community through our wonderful annual spaghetti dinner, culture performances and many more. Now as an alum, I look forward to attending those events are re-living old memories.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the connections and friendships I made. I graduated over four years ago and still have frequent contact with my former teachers and classmates.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

there for the students in many ways. I had teachers who not only cared about my academics, but about my personal life and future. I was always encouraged to further my education and strive to reach my goals.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help girls become strong, independent, intelligent young women. I feel it would also enable the school to invest more in their athletic program, their arts program and ensure that the diversity that I experienced is always there.

During my four years at St. Joan Antida High School, not only did I receive a wonderful Catholic education, it gave me an introduction to the workforce through the co-op program where I had the opportunity to obtain professional skills, it also was where the bond of my most cherished friendships began. The St. Joan Antida faculty is there for each and every girl and they give 100%.

Give unprivileged girls a great education & prepare them for continuing their education. St. Joan Antida would also use some of the funds to helping others through service projects, showing the girls the importance of helping your community & giving back.

I attended St. Joan Antida in the 1990's and still think fondly of the experiences I had there. It is a place of true diversity, tremendously caring teachers and administration, on that inspires the highest in its students. I was well prepared for all my future endeavors and would recommend SJA to anyone. I have kept an eye on SJA in all years since and attended many events.

As a graduate of the Class of '83, I gained so much by attending SJA. In addition to the education, I benefited from the all female, diverse population. I made some great friends and learned lessons in community service and living your faith. This school truly helps build character and successful young women!

As a 1969 graduate of SJA, I was able to experience diversity before it was in vogue. What a great privilege! The classes were small and we had all the help and encouragement we could possibly need to succeed; without the distraction of boys. I went on to become an RN and am always proud to tell people where I went to high school. J. Rochwerger

At SJA I was exposed to Diversity at its best and learned that the world is much more than what's in my own backyard. Not many schools encourage girls or low-income students to take 4 years of math, science, and advanced courses like SJA did. I am now an accountant and have served my community for 9 years as a public servant in politics & education. I credit the high expectations of my teachers at SJA for pushing me toward success.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand the campus to allow for more class offerings. I would have liked some shop classes.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

they understand what Diversity really is. The environment is so welcoming of everyone of EVERY background that it makes students WANT to learn about other cultures, religions, & classes of people. How better to prepare you for the real world??

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

true educators that focused on the needs of each individual student. No student got lost in the crowd at SJA.

Ways to make it better...

our science and computer labs were updated. It's hard to compete in a technological world when your lab equipment is out of date.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial of course. The staff here is dedicated and willing to do whatever it takes to produce strong women ready for life after high school - but the one thing holding them back is the funding

One thing I'd also say is that...

SJA has a proven track record. They've been educating young women for decades and are far from being a fly-by-night operation. They don't just talk the talk - they walk the walk.

I wanted to attend a high school with a small student body and St. Joan Antida H. S. was the school I chose. I never regretted my choice. I got an excellent education. Sisters and other staff members were totally dedicated. I felt "at home" at SJA and in fact, it was my home-away-from-home. The clubs and activities helped me to hone skills and make lasting friends. The importance of prayer and values also had a great impact on my life. Ultimately I chose to join the Sisters of Charity of St. Joan Antida and after I completed my college degree I taught in the theology department for over 20 years. I also worked with the guidance department specializing in college counseling. I love the school. As Sisters of Charity we are dedicated to serving young women who have many hurdles to jump over -- many more than existed when I was a high school student. We continue to strive for excellence in our programs and do all that is humanly possible to touch the heart and life of each young woman who comes to St. Joan Antida. We continue to be a small high school where students benefit from more individual attention. Teachers and staff go the extra mile to help each young woman grow into an adult who is competent, confident and prepared to face the challenges that life offers.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

witnessing the transformation that takes place in a teenager who comes to us in 9th grade and graduates as a young woman who is filled with pride, knowledge and skills to face the future.

the family atmosphere -- everyone is welcome, everyone belongs.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, creative and willing to go the extra mile because they truly believe in a Catholic education and the need for a school like St. Joan Antida. It's the only one of its kind in the state of Wisconsin.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

build a new building with state-of-the-art "everything" to enhance the educational experience of young women today.

I graduated from St. Joan's over 40 years ago, but know graduates from the 1990's and 2000's. What we agree upon is each of us was encourged to develope and use our talents, to have happy, fulfilling lives. The staff has changed over the years but they still work to show each student what her best talents are, and how to develope them, even if the student isn't always aware of the talents.

Back in the 60's there were not many alternatives for high school programs that could accomplish the feats of academics, social activities, faith-based involvement, and overall maturity. However, St. Joan Antida accomplished all of that and more. As a graduate back in 1967 I hold tightly to all of the memories of my four years at SJA. When I left Milwaukee I knew that my own children would not know the honor of a St. Joan Antida education. Always remember that academics is only one piece of the puzzle. How to function in the world with maturity, decency, and a good sense of humor makes all the difference in personal success. Thank God for SJA.
