Villa Angela-St. Joseph High School (VASJ) is a Catholic, comprehensive, co-educational high school committed to academic excellence and the development of student gifts. With a college preparatory curriculum rooted in Ursuline and Marianist core values of education, service, justice and diversity, VASJ strives to bring each student to a deeper commitment to Jesus Christ and Gospel values. Our Catholic values are woven throughout every aspect of student life and learning.
As the only school in the world that is co-sponsored by the Ursuline Sisters and Marianist Brothers, a VASJ education is uniquely different. We offer one of the most progressive approaches to an integrated curriculum that you will find in Cleveland. At VASJ, interdisciplinary learning isn’t just a goal, but a daily reality.
VASJ students become lifelong learners who transform the world.
Founded in 1990 with the merging of Villa Angela Academy (1878-1990) and Saint Joseph High School (1950-1990), VASJ has a rich past and is celebrating over 130 years of educational excellence in the Diocese of Cleveland.
For decades, VASJ has enrolled exceptional students from Catholic, private and public schools across the Cleveland area who want to grow spiritually, excel academically and be challenged athletically, and who are open to building friendships with students different from themselves.
As a smaller Catholic high school, a VASJ education provides far-reaching advantages to all of our students. VASJ provides a highly personalized learning experience based upon the relationships between students and teachers that only a small school can provide.
