Judge Memorial, Builders of a More Just Society

Judge Memorial, Builders of a More Just Society

Positioned in the urban heart of Utah's capital city, Judge Memorial Catholic High School proudly holds a 100-year history of inclusive academic excellence, embracing a widely diverse student body whose focus on servant leadership and the exploration of their full potential empowers graduates to become builders of a more just society.

Founded by immigrants-turned-entrepreneurs, Judge Memorial combines Catholic faith tradition with 21st-century innovation to foster a vibrant student community dedicated to scholarship, service and spiritual growth. Our charism of Cura Personalis means we take a holistic approach to invest in our students' intellectual, social, physical, and spiritual development so they can thrive in the rigorous post-secondary world.

Offering an impressive range of clubs, athletics, retreats, and service opportunities, we encourage students to explore, take risks, make discoveries - and connections. Our award-winning liberal arts curriculum, AP Capstone program, world languages, traveling science labs, and technological training lay an invaluable foundation for each student's future. Our exemplary faculty includes 77 percent with advanced degrees and seven PhDs. And our robust Counseling Center, devoted to social and emotional needs, learning resources, and college counseling ensures every child receives the supports to enable empathy, confidence, and independent thinking.

Celebrating our Centennial, Judge Memorial is recognized and respected for challenging students of many races, religions, and socio-economic backgrounds to strive for purpose, to prepare for the rigors of a university education, to participate in community service and ultimately, to return a full measure of value and character to society.
