St. Jude Catholic School
Where Faith, Love, and Leaders Grow


Founded in 2009, St. Jude has an enrollment of more than 250 students in preschool through eighth grade. Our academic community is blessed to be supported by a vibrant parish as well as the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, who serve 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 mission is to form well-rounded disciples who will become the future leaders of our Church, our communities and our world.

We encourage you to learn more about our school and the aspects that help to make St. Jude one of the premier Catholic elementary schools in the greater Peoria area. If you would like an in-person tour of our school and facilities, please contact us.




Our talented and highly qualified teaching professionals are committed to your child's academic success, spiritual growth, overall personal wellness, and holiness.
