Welcome to Saint Jude School

Dear Families and Friends,

It is my great joy to welcome you to Saint Jude School, a remarkable and energetic community inspired by a bold, essential vision: to instill in students a passion to learn and a love of God, faith, and virtue.  The Gospel and person of Jesus Christ guide this vision and every dimension of Saint Jude School.  He is our primary teacher, and through Him, in close partnership with parents, we teach and inspire our students to seek truth, appreciate beauty, give to those in need, and love what is good.

Ours is a school that nurtures students’ innate sense of curiosity and inquiry, and encourages their creativity and readiness for exploration and innovation.  We seek excellence in everything we do, holding the highest standards for students and teachers alike.  

Academically, we strive to open students’ minds to the world of knowledge and ideas, wherever that takes them.  While we are blessed with vibrant, spacious classrooms and learning spaces, our programs and partnerships often take us beyond our school – to local universities where our students study robotics, meteorology, anatomy and physiology and, with a local Catholic high school, to study Mandarin Chinese.

Equipped with an integrated moral and academic education, our students graduate from Saint Jude ready for success in high school and beyond, and eager to make a positive impact in the world.

It’s my great privilege to welcome you to our wonderful school community.

Dr. Higgins Signature
Patrick D. Higgins, Ed.D.
