Christian Service Program

As a Catholic school, our mission is to develop young people in the image of Jesus. At. St. Jude, we feel that in order to be successful in this goal, we must put great systems in place to make a true impact on each child. Our focus in everything that we do is built upon three core principles:

  • Faith – Developing the faith in Jesus and the beauty of the Catholic faith is what our students experience everyday on campus. In every aspect of our school, we first begin with our faith.
  • Excellence – We strive for excellence in everything that we do as a school. Excellence is promoted both inside the classroom and outside of it as we focus on the healthy development of each and every child, everyday. 
  • Service – Our Catholic faith goes beyond our belief and love for God, it is also a call to service others in need. We believe that everyday is a new opportunity to show God’s love, grace and sacrifice for others.
