#107: St. Joseph's Academy

  • Located in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Saint Louis.
  • Motto: 'Not I, But We'
  • The second all girls private Catholic high school in St. Louis, founded in 1836.
  • The original school was in a log cabin in the village of Carondelet.
  • Over the decades, the institution has continued to grow out of buildings due to the increase of the student body. It was at one time located at the present-day Fontbonne College.
  • The present building was constructed in 1954, with parts added on over the years.
  • It is actually located in Frontenac, even though the address is St. Louis.

The front of the main campus. (Unfortunately it was tough to get a picture since most of the area was covered with trees)

This is the second cake that spotlights the 'Where did YOU go to high school?' expression.

NOW: The cake sat outside the Academy until March, when a silent auction was held for the piece of art. It was reportedly sold for $3000(!), and eventually donated back. It is said by a caker that it is sitting inside the lobby. Obviously, it was the highest paid ever for a cake.
