Welcome to St. Jude Catholic School! We are very pleased you are interested in our school.
St. Jude Catholic School has a long tradition of providing a quality Catholic education. We are a parochial school with Christ at the center of our mission and our classrooms. We partner with parents to provide an education for each child’s mind and soul.
We pride ourselves in being a small school with a diverse population. Our average class size is 21 students, with a class size limit of 25. Each of our teachers is fully licensed, most with advanced degrees. Our teachers are all trained in differentiation and multiple teaching styles and methods to ensure that all students receive an appropriately challenging education, including students who are academically talented and those who have academic needs.
Catholic schools welcome students of all abilities. However, the range of services available will vary according to each school's resources. Decisions concerning admissions and continued enrollment of a student in a parochial school are based upon the student's emotional, academic, and physical abilities, as well as the resources available to the particular school in meeting the student's needs.
We encourage you to contact the office for a tour today!
