Updated Information for the 2019/2020 & 2020/2021 School Year

May 18, 2020


The official end of the 2019-2020 school year is Friday, May 22. All final, outstanding student work must be completed by 3:00 p.m. on May 22. Report cards will be sent the week of June 1.


Final transcripts will be available in early June. Seniors need to communicate with Mrs. Beck Curtes at hbeck@sjnma.org so she may send official final transcripts to the schools that they will attend in the fall. Please send all other transcript requests to lahlgren@sjnma.org.  All financial obligations to the academy must be met before transcripts are sent.

If Mexican students require a transcript with Apostille (certification from the State of Wisconsin), please send a request to lahlgren@sjnma.org. This year apostilles will take longer to process, probably 4-6 weeks. We will automatically process senior transcripts and diplomas with the Apostille.

If a student took college courses while here and wants to transfer those college credits to his/her new college, you must order transcripts through UWM. Use this link to order transcripts https://www.credentials-inc.com/tplus/?ALUMTRO003896.


Summer Academic OPS has been cancelled for the summer of 2020.


Leadership Cadre School is for those students interested in a leadership position in either the Military or Leadership Academy. Cadre will run from August 18 through August 25 and follow a different format to provide a more comprehensive leadership training experience.

RSVPs to attend Cadre must be received by the end of the day on July 10.  Please remember the invitation to Cadre is not a promise of a Leadership Position.


The Virtual Graduation for the Class of 2020 will be posted to YouTube on Saturday, May 23, at 4:00 p.m. Central Time. This event will feature the acknowledgment of diplomas, the announcement of Senior Awards and messages from President Tom Stocks, Headmaster Eric Wozniak, and more.

To watch the presentation, tune into the St. John’s Northwestern YouTube page at www.youtube.com/SJNMAvideos any time after 4:00 p.m. Central Time on Saturday, May 23.


We recognize our middle school and underclass cadets who have worked hard this year and earned awards. This presentation will be made available on May 27. More details will be shared shortly.


The sjnma.org email accounts for seniors will be disabled in mid to late June. Seniors should provide a personal email address to the academic office at academicoffice@sjnma.org so we can continue to communicate critical information. Be sure to forward to another email any vital information you have in your SJNMA email, such as college account information, etc.

International senior students requiring their I90s to transfer to their future schools must contact either or both Mrs. Beck Curtes, hbeck@sjnma.org, and Mrs. Rutherford, jrutherford@sjnma.org.

Please contact the Resident Life department to schedule an appointment to clean out personal belongings in the Barracks. The first day actual cleanouts will take place is Tuesday, May 26.

Due to the limited number of Resident Life Staff personnel currently on duty and to ensure proper social distancing protocols, we will abide by a STRICT APPOINTMENT SCHEDULE. Cadets and families who fail to make an appointment will not be allowed to enter the barracks.

A Resident Life staff member must confirm your appointment request via email or phone call. Please do not assume that a request assures you of an appointment time until you receive confirmation from the Resident Life Department.

If you are unable to visit the campus physically, please contact Resident Life to make alternative arrangements. We will provide more information on these options as we work with each family to determine particular items that need to be stored or returned.

To make an appointment, please email residentlife@sjnma.org, or call 262-646-7113 or 262-719-0549.
