Celebrating 52 years of excellence in Catholic education!

Recognized as a leader in educational practices, St. Jude the Apostle Catholic School maintains AdvancED accreditation through the district-wide process of the Archdiocese of Atlanta. A second recognition as a National Blue Ribbon School demonstrates a continuous level of challenging academic distinction. Our school community succeeds due to its positive culture which is built upon traditions deeply rooted in faith and service to others. The school's mission statement captures the spirit of the school by stating, "St. Jude the Apostle Catholic School nurtures the formation of Saints and Scholars." Our school models the integration of writing with technology so that students of all learning modalities can achieve success. The essential elements within our language arts program become meshed through the Writing and Thinking Across the Curriculum Program, beginning in kindergarten with the simplest written expression and progressing to literature analysis and research papers in eighth grade. Technology is paramount to the integration of a rigorous academic instruction. All classrooms are equipped with iPads, computers, laptops, LCD projector/interactive white boards, and document cameras. A technology grant that provided iPads to seventh and eighth grade students brought national acclaim and recognition to the school when Today's Catholic Teacher magazine selected St. Jude for the "Catholic Schools for Tomorrow Innovations in Education" award. St. Jude the Apostle Catholic School proudly develops its students with a deep spiritual and strong academic foundation that prepares graduates to excel in high school and to become leaders of the future.
