Student Life

Spirituality and Service

Sharing the Gift of the Sisters of Saint Joseph
Academia María Reina promotes the spirituality and tradition of the Sisters of Saint Joseph through different activities, liturgies, prayer services, and experiences, thereby completing the education of our students. We also believe in supporting the spirituality of the adults in our community and, therefore, offer religious opportunities for them as well.


Working alongside members of the Religion Department, AMR’s Peer Ministers organize and deliver the retreats offered to their fellow students. Every student, from seventh to twelfth grade, participates in these one-day spiritual experiences that complement their religious and human formation.

Weekly Mass

Mass is offered twice a week in our school chapel at 7:10 am. Students and faculty are encouraged to participate in these celebrations, which may focus on special community needs and intentions.

Special Liturgies

The school observes the liturgical traditions and principal celebrations of the universal Church, as well as those that respond to the local culture and school community.

A School of Service

Following the charism of the Sisters of Saint Joseph and their principles of social justice and inclusive love, we believe community service is an essential part of the educational process. Therefore, our students are strongly encouraged to express their love and faith by participating in the following programs:


Comunidad Compartiendo Amor (CCA) is the school organization in charge of the community service program. Students from ninth to twelfth grades can serve at the center of their preference and experience the valuable satisfaction of volunteering. We are proud to recognize CCA as the organization with the largest number of student participants. Some of the centers where our students serve are Hospital del Niño, Centro Joaquina Vedruna, Help 4 Paws, Humane Society of PR, Miramar Living, Caminando con Caimito, Reverenda Inés Figueroa, among others.

Additionally, CCA organizes school-wide campaigns to support local and national charities such as Susan G. Komen, Campamento Misión, CAP, Hospital Pediátrico, Make a Wish Foundation, Canastas de Bendición, Hogar Padre Venard, Habitats for Humanity, among others.

Joining CCA efforts, the school also sponsors service activities during the summer such as CSJ-It-Forward, Service @ The Hamptons, Community Builders for Peace, AMR’s summer camp, and Colegio María Auxiliadora’s summer camp.


Seventh and eighth graders can become part of the CCA organization through Manos Amigas. This group meets weekly and organizes activities for different causes and needs. Once a month, they hold an activity in a center outside school, either for the homeless, elderly, or children. In addition, they also sponsor some not-for-profit organizations in our community.
