We have 2 children that attend St. Jude Catholic School and are thrilled to have a Catholic education option so close to our home that is Christ-centered while being academically challenging at the same time. The principal and teachers are fantastic role models for our kids - loving, intelligent, kind - and provide the perfect environment for all students to learn and grow. Children are challenged with a well-rounded curriculum which includes spanish and music at all levels - including pre-K! Students participate in service activities for the parish and community which help them learn the importance of serving others at a very young age. The camaraderie amongst parents and families is amazing. We are so blessed to part of a new, vibrant, growing school and parish!

My daughter has attended St. Jude for two years of preschool and now is in kindergarten. I feel very blessed to be a part of this school for many reasons. The principal is an absolutely wonderful, strong leader that shows warmth and encouragement to students and parents. The teachers attend to each individual student and incorporate Christian values and love in all they do. The curriculum is challenging, including Spanish in all grade levels and a terrific music program. Parents band together in times of need and in participation in activities surrounding the school. My family and I truly feel like part of a family at St. Jude and encourage anyone to come and visit this great school.

My sons currently attend St. Jude Catholic School, one in Kindergarten and the other in preschool. My husband and I have been so pleased by the experience our family has had at the school. The atmosphere of the school is very welcoming and joyful. My boys have made wonderful friends, love their teachers and are excelling academically. I love that religion is not just a class, but faith is included in every aspect of their day. I would highly recommend St. Jude Catholic School to anyone. Quick note: As of 2011-2012, the school offers Pre K - 4th grade and plans to add a grade every year until they include 8th grade.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
