Overview:Joliet Catholic Academy is a Roman Catholic college preparatory co-educational high school, co sponsored by the Carmelites and the Joliet Franciscan Sisters.
Joliet Catholic Academy is an institution proud of its heritage and tradition. In 1869, the Joliet Franciscans opened St. Francis Academy to young women in the Joliet area. Nearly 50 years later, DeLaSalle High School for boys was founded by the Christian Brothers. In 1933, the Carmelites assumed leadership of DeLaSalle changing the name to Joliet Catholic High School. These three schools are the cornerstones for Joliet Catholic Academy, established as such on July 1, 1990.
