ACADEMICS

The national Catholic high school graduation rate is 99.1%. Of these graduates, 84.7% go on to college, compared to 44.1% of public school graduates.

Our administrators, teachers and parents are commited to providing all students a solid foundation for academic and personal success, challenging them to stretch beyond their perceived potential and knowledge.

 

 

CATHOLIC IDENTITY

With daily prayer and guidance, our teachers, parents and students are given the opportunity to strengthen their relationship with God and become examples of Christ’s love in the world.

In witness to our Catholic identity, our students “let their light sine” by leading prayer, participating in the sacraments, serving others and treating each other as equal members of the Saint Jude community.

 

 NURTURING ENVIRONMENT

Students are valued, celebrated, forgiven and corrected by Christ’s example. We believe in a fair and consistent approach to discipline.

Our students’ safety is our number one priority, allowing parents a “peace of mind” inside and outside the classroom.

 Saint Jude develops the whole person, challenging each of our students to reach his or her fullest potential.

 

EXTRA CURRICULAR

At Saint Jude, we offer our students a full range of extracurricular activities. Participating in ministries, service projects, sports and clubs enables them to foster relationships and develop leadership skills necessary to become well-rounded students.
