Saint Joseph's Academy, referred to as SJA, is a private school established in 1914 by Congregatio Immaculati Cordis Mariae (CICM) offering Kindergarten to Grade 12.


St. Joseph's School was founded in 1914 by Belgian missionaries Fr. Jose van Runenkelen and Fr. Victor Zaiel of Congregatio Immaculati Cordis Mariae (CICM) established next to the St. Joseph Parish Church (where the famous Las Piñas Bamboo Organ is housed) to foster literacy in the parish community. The school, which started as a grade school, eventually included secondary education and was renamed to St. Joseph's Academy. The school was recognized by the American colonial government of the Philippine Islands on July 27, 1916 and is its recognized legal foundation day. St. Joseph's Academy is the first Catholic private school of Las Piñas and other neighboring towns. The first batch of grade school graduates of the academy was produced in 1922.[1]
