Beyond the Building
The Robert & Maureen O'Keefe Academic Center officially opened its doors in December 2012. Hailed as "an academic center to suit the dynamic and changing needs of education in the 21st century', the $4.5 million center added 20,000 square feet of classrooms, studios, seminar rooms, conference rooms, auditorium, and a large open media center to St. Joseph High School's footprint. It has changed forever the face of our school.
With the Media Center upstairs, the downstairs was dedicated to the arts -- including a pottery club and kiln room (which are constantly busy with the artistic endeavors of students and staff alike) -- and on any given the day, the tropical sound of steel drums echo down the hall.
The Cup of Joe Cafe opened its doors in 2020 and the Marian Courtyard bursts to life each Spring, providing another space for reflection.
