Ohio’s Tax-Credit Scholarship Program

We want to thank everyone who has availed themselves of this opportunity! As of July 21, our school already has $7,500 designated towards helping our students! Using the FACTS program, all SJJ families are eligible to apply for consideration to receive a scholarship on their tuition. This new State of Ohio tax-credit scholarship program allows donors to reduce their tax liability and provide scholarship funding for students seeking a Catholic education. Contributions to the Angel Scholarship Fund will be used to provide need-based tuition assistance for students to attend our Catholic schools. Donors to this fund will be eligible for a 100% tax credit on their 2022 Ohio income tax form, up to a maximum amount of $750 (or $1,500 for married couples filing jointly),and can designate the school to which they would like their support to go! Any Ohio tax-payer can choose to designate our school! You can find out more by visiting and through speaking with your own tax professional. Our students thank you for your consideration of this opportunity!


Please take time to review the handbook. There have been some updates.

Parent Alert Communication System

SJJ will be using a new communication system to help improve and facilitate communication with our families. Parent Alert will allow us to send out communications via Text, Email, and Voice Messages for all type of events. These alerts can be used for many reasons and will provide us a fast, efficient way to communicate with our families. To ensure you are able to receive our alerts please text the keyword “START” to 22383 from your mobile device. Any text alerts from our school will begin with “SJJ Alert” and calls will show from 440-238-4877.

Per the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, we provide all recipients with the option to Opt Out of receiving school alerts. Anytime we send a text alert, you will see ‘Stop to End’. If you reply ’Stop’ you will no longer receive our text alerts regardless if we select you as a recipient.”

It is important that you sign up for these alerts as I will be using this to communicate school information to you throughout the year. I will no longer be using Remind101.


We are in the process of getting an SJJ school app. It is being tested now and should be up and running by the beginning of school. We will update you with information on this when it is ready.

Enjoy the rest of your summer.

In service of youth,

Mr. Akosi
