I couldn't be happier with the faith filled and strong academic community of St. Jude School. We have had all of our children in St. Jude and have found the school to be a wonderful balance of academic strength in a supportive and still structured environment. The children are expected to excel in their school work, morals and behavior.

I have been so pleased with our educational experience at St. Jude. I am amazed at the academic programs which are offered. My children have been learning Spanish from a very young age and my older children are in advanced math classes, which is very impressive for a smaller school. The recent technology enhancements have been wonderful. By integrating iPads into various classrooms, the teachers have been able to supplement the information which is found in the text books. My children are so happy when they come home every day. Happy kids = happy parents! Keep up the great work, St. Jude!

It certainly provide the families of Monroe with a superb choice.

I''m thankful to be part of St. Jude School community since 2004. I currently have two children in the school and I have seen them grow and become inspired to accelerate and challange themselves as individuals of faith, in academics as well as morals and ethics in a supportive and nuturing environment. These attributes of St. Jude school will help guide my children in their future endeavors.

St. Jude provides a rigorous curriculum that prepares its students for high school , college and beyond. I have had three children attend this wonderful school and can attest to their individual development both academically and spiritually. St. Stude students consistently score in the top 15% on national standardized test and are frequently recognized in the local meadia for their individual achiecments in both high school and college. I highly recommend St. Jude to perspective families looking for the best for their children.
