Our Catholic faith is at the center of everything we do. Our school day begins with prayer. We explore our faith and experience sacraments together. Students know that God is included in all of our activities as we encourage each other to live out Gospel values. How does this make a difference? It sets the tone for our approach to education, beginning with our belief that each child is a unique individual created by God with special gifts and talents.

St. Jude is a tight-knit community. Parents are in our school everyday as coaches, room parents, chaperones, cafeteria helpers and volunteers. Over the years moms and dads get to know each other, their child’s classmates, and their families. For students, sharing the elementary and middle school years together forges bonds that stay with them for a lifetime.
