Founded in 1954, St. Joan Antida High School (SJA) is an all-girl Catholic high school sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of St. Joan Antida that stands out among educational institutions in Wisconsin. Located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, SJA serves a culturally and economically diverse student population, shaping and challenging the minds of today's young women.

From its founding, the St. Joan Antida High School Sisters, Faculty and Staff have combined care, discipline and academic challenge to nurture each young woman's giftedness with college preparatory curricula. As Milwaukee’s newest International Baccalaureate World School (IB), SJA is committed to breaking the cycle of poverty by providing a competitive education to its students in offering an educational model that is oriented toward academic quality, a culture of excellence, and student-centered learning.

We invite you to explore the history of St. Joan Antida High School, our mission and the greatest examples of our work - our graduates.
