Welcome JCA parents! One word is often mentioned when graduates summarize their Joliet Catholic Academy experience: Family.

Students, faculty, staff, siblings, alumni, friends, Carmelites and Franciscans gather from all over the country to form our JCA community. The outstanding support and involvement of JCA parents has helped to form a true family atmosphere in our building and is a building block of our tradition.

Within the Parents portion of our website, you will find the Parent-Student Handbook, plus information on the Guidance Department, the Health Office and our newsletters.

For more information on Our School, Academics, Admissions, Athletics, Campus Ministry and Alumni, please follow the menu bars for the appropriate categories.

All JCA parents are invited to join the school’s Parent Association. The primary objective of this association is to build a community of spirit and involvement between parents/guardians of JCA students and the JCA Administration and to assist the school in fundraising, social events and special activities.

Thank you for your time and, again, welcome to JCA and to the word that hopefully will define your experience here: Family.
