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 It's hard to compete in a technological world when your lab equipment is out of date.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.
