The history of St. Joan Antida High School (SJA) is as rich as our secret sauce. When the Sisters of Charity of Saint Joan Antida arrived in Milwaukee in the 1930s, the Sisters worked directly with immigrant families to ensure that they were supported as they built their new lives here in the city. From that foundation, the spaghetti dinner was born in 1955, giving families a hearty meal made lovingly by the Sisters.
Since founding SJA in 1954, the Sisters began hosting Spaghetti with the Sisters not only as a way to feed our community but also to raise much-needed funds to support the everyday needs of the school.
Today, SJA serves 220 students in grades 9-12 in an all-girl setting. We embrace our students of diverse backgrounds, we engage them through challenging academic programs and we empower them to serve the greater community in which they live and learn.
Now entering its 68th year, Spaghetti with the Sisters has raised more than $1 Million in funds that go directly into the expanding educational opportunities for our students. With your support as a volunteer, you can make this year's Spaghetti with the Sisters the best one yet!
We have a wide range of volunteer roles that are needed in order to support the success of the event. There are opportunities to volunteer the day of the event as well as options to support us before the event.
