Embracing the motto, "St. Jude School: Educating Hearts and Minds in Mercy, Service, and Academics," the students' educational experience combines a tradition of faith, care for others, and academic excellence. Instilling in students a lifelong love of learning, faculty are supported by parents in the delivery of a focused, differentiated, and creative program of core-curricular subjects and the arts. The nurturing, child-centered environment fosters a climate that invites and encourages students to recognize their gifts and to actualize their potential. Innovative teaching methods and thoughtful integration of technology provide a rigorous curriculum, actively engaging students in the learning process. Challenging students to become risk-takers and real-world problem solvers helps to prepare them for college and career readiness.

A unique, well-defined Research Continuum for grades K-8 ensures that students learn the spiraling, sequential steps for research and the essential writing skills necessary to produce quality projects and presentations. Students achieve academic excellence as demonstrated by multiple scholarships and awards earned each year.

The enduring practice of partnership between home and school and the firm commitment to work together on all levels are the keys to the extraordinary accomplishments and success of the students of St. Jude School, preparing them to become responsible citizens of the Church and the world.
