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.
