What a great choice for our family! Our child is thriving at Saint Jude School. The curriculum is competitive, small class size and character education is unparalleled. This is more than a school, it is a community! The teachers across grades know and care for you children and support their development as strong, caring and responsible individuals.

Excellent school with a curriculum that is challenging, but also fosters each individual child's interest. The smaller class sizes give each child the encouragement and chance to excel, as well as having teachers whom have the time management to cater to each child's needs without being over worked. While lacking in an official drama department, the monthly masses are a theatrical production in itselves; as well as the many different productions that are put on throughout the year. Children learn the discipline, courage and importance of public speaking from an early age, without being forced. Watching your child excel academically is wonderful, but watching your child excel cognitively as well as becoming a compassionate and well-rounded humanitarian has been more than I could ever have hoped for. I chose this school for the individual academic attention for my child, the continuity and importance of daily education in religion to become a polite, well-rounded humanitarian in our society.

My 2 young sons are thriving at St. Jude and as a parent I am in love with the affordable academic excellence as a private education option (even when we were a single income family we were able to keep up with the tuition). For the Pre-K and Kindergarten programs, I found them to cost about half of what the local daycare options were (so technically we were actually saving money every month). A very safe, nurturing and engaging environment that not only challenges through academics, but supports kindness, compassion and active participation through helping others (both inside and outside of the school community). I sincerely appreciate the focus on traditional phonics (which had my son reading books on his own by age 5) and the intimate class sizes which support more individualized support/instruction when needed (my eldest in 3rd grade has sensory & distraction challenges and we have found the partnership of each of his teachers to be wonderfully engaged). We will be here through 8th grade!!

Saint Jude School has been the best decision we could have made for our children. In addition to providing our kids with top academics, Saint Jude School helps develop their character, and challenges them to be the best students and people they can be. You can spot a Saint Jude student in a crowd. They are kind, respectful, confident and willing to work hard. I cannot recommend this school enough.
