Letter from the Principal

Dear Families and Students,

St. Jude’s mission, and what we aspire to on a daily basis, is to be a parish Catholic school where parents, teachers, and students work together in an engaging and values-based environment to help students reach their full potential, becoming contributing members of their families, community, society, and the Catholic Church.

We offer a 9-year (grades K through 8) sequential program wherein children are recognized for their unique individual worth, and encouraged, directed and assisted in their growth toward maturity. The integration of our religious faith is emphasized in developing the whole child spiritually, intellectually, physically and socially.

We are a community within the Divine Mercy Family of Parishes, which includes Our Lady of Visitation and St. Joseph Catholic Church. The strength of our community, our many events throughout the year, our highly involved PTO, and our robust volunteer base all work in conjunction to provide a solid foundation for your child’s educational experience. St. Jude School's excellent reputation exists because of the commitment and efforts of our parents and exceptional staff.

If you are considering joining St. Jude School and Divine Mercy Family of Parishes, we encourage you to talk to as many people as you can in our community about our school and feel free to ask any questions. Please contact me personally if you’d like to set up a tour. We look forward to meeting you.

Peace and Blessings,

Mrs. Julie Nagel
Interim Principal
