description

The image shows the graduating class of St. Joseph's Academy El Paso, ca. 1927. St. Joseph's was the forerunner of today's Loretto Academy. It was established by the Loretto sisters in San Elizario in 1879 and in 1892, they started St. Joseph’s Academy for Girls in El Paso. The Sisters of Loretto staffed most of the early parochial schools in El Paso beginning with Sacred Heart in 1892, St. Mary in 1903, St. Ignatius in 1905, Guardian Angel in 1912, Holy Family in 1922, St. Joseph and St. Patrick in 1923, and Our Lady of Assumption in 1960. In 1923, Loretto Academy in the Austin Terrace neighborhood was opened and St. Joseph Academy was transferred to the new location. High School girls and boys were educated there at that time. The picture shows the first seven boys graduating from Loretto Academy.
