1974

On November 1, 1974, the first group of Sisters of St. Joseph the Worker moved to Walton to establish their Motherhouse. .

1975

Summer 1975 the Sisters organized a Bible school for the children of All Saints. Then parishioners asked the Sisters to reopen All Saints School, which closed in 1966. After discussing with All Saints pastor, Fr. Joseph Collins, the Sisters agreed to reopen the school assuming all financial responsibility.

1976

All Saints Parish leased the existing four-room school building to the Sisters of St. Joseph the Worker. The Academy opened its doors on August 30, 1976, with an enrollment of 49 students outgrowing its facility in less than a decade, reaching an enrollment of 135 students.

1985

On August 15, 1985, with the support of All Saints parish, ground was broken for the construction of six additional classrooms, larger restrooms with handicap accessibility, an office, faculty room, and a school hall.

1995

In 1995, it again became clear that SJA had outgrown its physical plant. At this point, the cafeteria was converted into two classrooms, moving the children to the hall for lunch.

1997

Continued growth necessitated the lease of office spaces under an adjoining medical building in 1997 and 1998.

2001

Continued growth necessitated the lease of office spaces under an adjoining medical building in 1997, 1998, and 2001. These were converted into classrooms to accommodate student growth.

2005

The success of our kindergarten prompted the initiation of our preschool program for three and four year olds in 2005.

2007

In 2007, we realized the need for after-school care services.

2009

In 2009, the medical building was acquired by the Sisters following retirement of the owner, Dr. William Waller. The building was named Waller Hall in his honor. Together with housing our middle school, Waller Hall accommodates our Art and Music programs as well as  providing some much needed storage space.

2011

We realized the need for child care services, which were expanded to year-round Day Care in 2011.

2023

In 2023 we expanded our day care services for children beginning at the age of one year old.
