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%.
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
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.
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.
