Service & Leadership

Service & Leadership

SJA graduates have many opportunities in and out of school hours to develop great leadership skills through service programs and extracurricular activities. Being exposed to different viewpoints, ideas and situations, will help them become more aware of their surroundings and how they can make a positive impact in their families, schools and communities.

Altar Servers

Boys and girls can train to become altar servers in fifth grade. They can then assist with the liturgical ministry in grades 6-8.

Student Council

Lead by seventh and eighth grade officers, the Student Council organizes several charitable drives and community service activities throughout the school year.  Monies raised have been donated to Catholic schools impacted by horrible storms. Food drives have assisted those marginalized, diaper donations have benefited Geauga County Family Services, and candy and comfort items, have been collected for troops overseas, just to name a few of the many service projects.

Breakfast of Champions

Every Thursday in Lent, junior high students are invited to attend “Breakfast of Champions.” The morning begins with 8:00AM mass and breakfast follows in the Parish Hall where students listen to community leaders who share their Faith. It is the goal of St. Joan of Arc Catholic School to make faith conscious, positive and active through education.


Eighth Grade Buddies

At the beginning of each school year, kindergarteners get matched-up with an eighth-grade buddy. Throughout the year, the classes work together in a variety of ways; they sit together at mass, they make things like gingerbread houses together, they play sight word bingo and they participate in scavenger hunts. The eighth graders learn patience as they assist their buddies in reading. The eighth graders also love creating a storybook for each of their buddies each year. Both classes love this special time they spend together each week. 


Student-Produced Morning Announcements

Seventh & Eighth graders work with the principal to produce morning announcements. Students take turns being in front of and behind the camera.

St. Joan of Arc Catholic School is dedicated to instill within each student a lifelong desire to learn, lead and live the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Learn. Lead. Live.
