Sts Simon & Jude School
The mission of Saints Simon and Jude School is to instill in our students personal excellence, academic proficiency, and Gospel values within an active parish-centered community extending to the community at large.
The philosophy of Saints Simon and Jude School centers on four ideals; forming Catholic values; striving for academic excellence and a quality education; fostering the unique potential of each student within a Catholic identity; developing faith through service to others and active membership in a Catholic parish community.
Our schoolwide learning expectations reflect our commitment to educate the whole child spiritually, academically, social/emotionally, physically, and globally.
We strive by personal example and values incorporated into our daily teaching to give our students a model of life centered on our resurrected Christ.
We recognize that parents are primary educators of their children; thus, we design our programs to complement Catholic family values. We encourage each student to achieve personal and academic excellence.
Our curriculum recognizes individual differences in gifts, abilities, and learning styles.
In each classroom, teachers focus on creating a faith community based on prayer, service, and parish involvement.
