In the midst of a year marked by challenges, uncertainty, and countless hurdles, Josephinum Academy students chased goals and pursued passions. They created. They dreamed. They studied, laughed, worked, and grew. They persevered.

Josephinum's Virtual Spring Event 

Held on April 29, 2021, the Josephinum community celebrated our students with a virtual event in lieu of the traditional annual Spring Luncheon. "Planting the Seeds of Opportunity," was a tremendous success, raising a record-breaking $225,000 for student scholarships and financial aid. The program in its entirety can be viewed on the event website and contributions are still welcome. 

This year, we took a special focus on the work of Helen Bruns Ryan, Chair Emerita, recognizing her vision and dedication to the Josephinum Community for the past forty years. Helen has not only planted the seeds of opportunity for over 40 graduating classes of Chicagoland's young women, but has cultivated, nurtured, and seen our students begin to plant their own seeds of opportunity. Hear from Helen about her journey and meet some of the Jo graduates whose lives she impacted so greatly in the below event video.
