Our Catholic Identity
St. Jude Catholic School was founded in 2009 with a total enrollment of 44 students in preschool
through first grade. In our brief history, the school has grown exponentially and now our enrollment is over 200 students in preschool through eighth grade. We are blessed to be
supported by a vibrant parish and to have the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist as
teachers in our school. We are committed to immersing our students in the Catholic faith and
challenging them to reach their highest potential intellectually, spiritually and physically. Our motto,
“St. Jude Catholic School, where faith love and leaders grow,” speaks of our mission of forming disciples
who will be the future leaders of our Church, our community and our world.
