School Reviews

1 year ago
We enrolled our children at St. Jude''s since we moved to New Lenox from Chicago nearly 8 years ago. . .it was the best decision we ever made. Our children love to go to school and they are learning at an accelerated rate. Now with the 3-and-4-year-old preschool program the school is even more robust and has a great feeder program.
