I graduated from SJA in 1991 and I can honestly say the experience has made me a better person. I currently have a MBA in Finance and if it wasn't for SJA's strive to excellence even back in the early 90's I don't know where I would be. Even though the economy is in a recession and I have been laid off and can't find a job right now, but I still communnicate with people who are involved with the school and they keep me motivated and inspired.

I graduated from SJA 41 years ago and credit my education and the positive environment at SJA with preparing me to be successful. A non-coed education is a real choice that should be considered. I graduated at a time when women were not generally recognized as leaders or given many opportunities. My SJA education didn't automatically teach limitations... in fact, just the opposite. I highly recommend SJA and know that any young woman who is lucky enough to attend this school will also look back, as I do, knowing it was the right choice!

Ways to make it better...

Had the resources so many schools have today... at the time technology was just emerging.

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

I'm so proud of my association with this school and they work they do!

As a former graduate of SJA I cannot explain all the ways that my life has been shaped and the values I took away with me after graduation. Diversity, self awareness and the drive to suceed are all easily incorporated into every day life and lessons at SJA. You are not just a face in the crowd- you are a part of something bigger where every voice is heard.

The Great!

In the 4 years of education I had there.

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

the diversity and the quality of educators who are not afraid to bring out each young lady's potential and build on strengths individualy.

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

Male and female alike. All willing to help and teach and mentor.

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

expand on some existing programs and venture into some new ones to aid in teaching and staying current with the times. It would help to give the girls and the school an extra edge on the competitive side in an ever changing world.

I graduated from Saint Joan Antida's way back in 1958 and the values instilled in me at this all girls high school remain with me today. Although diversity was not spoken of then - by the time the rest of the country got on the band wagon, they found SJA alums leading the way.

The Great!

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

I have always said the main thing I learned at SJA was to love and to be free to express it. It was not an emotion that was expressed in the 50's and unlike today it was rarely heard of at home.

Expand and reach out to more young women.

I recently sent this to Mrs. Susan Henzig, former Vice Principal for SJA...I think it pretty much sums up my experience: "So, I was thinking about you and SJA today. I participate in a dialogue circle about race and ethnicity as part of my job (with colleagues) and every time I have those conversations it amazes me that so much of the way I view the world was shaped by ...the experience I had at St. Joan's. When I talk about the experience (after people look at me like I'm crazy when I tell them I went to an all girl's school), they start to become amazed at what I learned about the world, culture, religion and spirituality, and race and ethnicity while attending a Catholic school. So, I just wanted to say thank you :) I wouldn't be doing what I am doing, and standing up for the things I stand up for, and educating the students I have an opportunity to interact with, if I wouldn't have had the experience I did."

I am a proud alumni of St Joan Antida High School. The experiences I had there, specifically with having the ability to be involved in so many different clubs and multicultural groups, has been a wonderful foundation for me in my life. I believe that because of my experiences at SJA that I am where I am today, running my own successful business for the past 6 year as well as being a leader in my church and with other community programs.

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

how it's given me a strong worldly scope of life. I learned how to respect all people, however different in appearence, and even celebrate and appreciate the differences we find in people. To go out and make a difference in the world.

Ways to make it better...

I don't know how it could have been any better for me - I know the school now probably is in need of help with covering costs for the students. The don't want to turn any away but it's tough times for people to pay for private education.
