Diversity and Inclusion

Our Mission Statement

“Inspiring growth in knowledge and faith since 1869, the Joliet Catholic Academy family creates an environment that cultivates opportunities for academic excellence, meaningful service, Christian respect and Catholic values in the traditions of the Carmelites and Franciscans.”

Diversity Statement

“Inspired by our Catholic faith, JCA boldly embraces the challenge to create a culture of acceptance that celebrates differences and upholds justice for all.”

We are Stronger, TOGETHER

The world we live in consistently becoming more and more diverse every day. We all bring our own unique layers of our lives within interactions and it is helpful to recognize and appreciate these arrangements within ourselves that shapes how we feel, think, and act. Joliet Catholic Academy’s approach to diversity and inclusion is not anchored in any political paradigm, but flows from our Catholic faith and mission of our school, the Carmelites of the Most Pure Heart of Mary, and the Sisters of St. Francis of Mary Immaculate. JCA maintains a community culture that honors and embraces diversity and inclusion using the school’s Carmelite and Franciscan Catholic values and Catholic social teachings as its guideposts.
