My daughter, Sophia, now in 2nd grade, has attended St Joan of Arc School in Aberdeen, MD since PreK. We love the small and caring community. The teachers are dedicated and concerned with each child's progress. We appreciate the small class sizes and curriculum along with the STEM focus. She has excelled in all her subjects and I am impressed with what she has learned in her time there.

Our son will be completing his first year at SJA (PK) in 2022, so we have been part of the return to in-person during the pandemic. SJA's Advancement Director Elisa Maid was super friendly and informative from the start of our journey with SJA (attending an open house, learning about their curriculum, tuition, etc). Once our son was accepted and enrolled, we have loved the structure, the STEM curriculum, the abundance of activities (in spite of the pandemic), and the health and safety plans. They have been quick to notify us of any positive covid cases and changes/alerts through the county and/or the Archdiocese. Our son loves SJA and so do we!

I have been a proud SJA parent for 10+ years now and it`s been a great experience for my boys from Kindergarten through 8th grade. The class sizes are small which allows for personalized attention. The teachers are great and help the children grow academically, socially, and spiritually. I highly recommend this school.

St Joan of Arc Catholic School provides a faith-based STEM education in a small school campus setting inside the small town of Aberdeen. The teachers and staff care about their students. My son likes his school. The school has neat traditions and activities that make it unique and a family setting.

St Joan Of Arc in Aberdeen has Exceeded all my expectations. We decided to send our children there in the wake of Covid and within weeks of them being there, I saw a positive change in them. I would recommend SJA to anyone that is looking for the best education they can get.

They provide an amazing curriculum with great staff. Our son loves it there. I could not be happier with our decision to enroll. We refer any parents with children aged Pre-K to 8th grade to strongly consider this institution.

We have been at SJA since 5th grade. Our son is now graduating this year from SJA! This school has been such a blessing. This school has been a life-changing experience for my son. He has made friends, has been challenged academically and has had the opportunity to compete in robotics competitions in the past. He has been lucky enough to have amazing teachers! They truly care about the kids and it absolutely shows!

I'm a graduate, and now a parent of 2 students who are thriving at Saint Joan of Arc's Catholic School. The come home from school talking about what they learned, what the discussions have them thinking, and I love how the school emphasizes STEM, and takes time to help connect learning to healthy habits, good morals, and a well-formed conscience. The remote learning was done in a way that kept my kids engaged during the 2020 closures, and after proving how in-person classes could be conducted safely, the school offered several opportunities for families to choose to remain remote or return in person. The admin / staff have been very accommodating, and my kids have been safely back in school for a couple weeks now - and are doing great. I appreciate the financial aid that makes this possible for my family, and I hope Maryland continues to fund the BOOST program so my younger kids will have access to the same safe and nurturing school experience that my older kids have had. Thank you all so much, and God bless SJA.

From the moment my husband and I arrived for an open house at St. Joan of Arc School we felt welcomed. The staff took the time to get to know my family and are always kind. In addition to the nurturing environment at St. Joan of Arc School the academics are excellent. When my son first arrived at St. Joan of Arc he was significantly behind academically. In one year I was able to watch him grow and thrive in his academics. He has come such a long way and I thank St. Joan of Arc for that. St. Joan of Arc has been such a blessing for our family.
