From the School - Sponsored
St. Jude the Apostle School’s mission is centered around the administration, faculty and staff’s core values of providing a small, family oriented school deeply rooted in our Catholic faith; fostering respect, cooperation and an uplifting spirit in our school environment; and preparing a solid foundation for our students to successfully meet the high expectations set before them in an ever-changing world. These core values guide all decisions in the areas of curriculum, programs, culture and policies that support the school’s mission.
Striving for academic excellence, St. Jude School promotes and provides for the overall growth and development of all students by addressing their specific needs and abilities. St. Jude offers honors math and literature to middle school students and tiered level reading and math classes in the elementary grades. This practice provides students with personalized instruction as it lowers pupil/teacher ratios. Advanced students are challenged through programs such as Quiz Bowl, Math Tournaments, Geography Bee, and Robotics Club competitions.
St. Jude School is known for its Catholic family environment, which fosters social justice in an atmosphere of faith, love, and concern for others. Our students are always willing to go out of their way to give and support others. This is especially evident through the middle school’s service organizations: Kindness Club, Community Cougars, and Junior Beta Club. With meetings scheduled during the school day, all 5th -8th students grade are members in one of these clubs and actively serve the school community by leading the recycling program, reading and mentoring younger students, providing mass buddies for Pre-K and Kindergarten, serving as morning carpool greeters, and assisting with school clean up days. These service organizations also serve the outside communities by serving meals at St. Vincent de Paul, raising money for adaptive bicycles for handicapped children, and completing hands-on projects with local public elementary students.
