Our Mission & Philosophy
St. Jude was an Apostle and Martyr who lived in the first century. Being a close relative of Our Lord, it is said that his appearance was similar. Hence, many depictions of St. Jude have him wearing a medallion displaying the image of Jesus.
In the spirit of our Patron, St. Jude the Apostle School models itself on the vision of a Catholic school presented by the Church. With a Catholic, multi-cultural community of students, parents and staff, St. Jude the Apostle School has Jesus and His teachings as our reason and basis for existence. We provide a program for grades K-8 that is attentive to the needs of today, illumined by the Gospel spirit and message that permeates all facets of school life.
Recognizing the importance of the family and that parents are the primary educators of their children, St. Jude the Apostle School provides a formal education, which nurtures and complements their training. With the support of the entire community, the school endeavors to instruct the whole child, fostering spiritual, intellectual, psychological, social, aesthetic and physical development.
With St. Jude as our guide and believing that the children are the future of the Catholic Church we state our MISSION as …
… forming young people in the image of Jesus
