St. Jude provides a hands-on, engaging Kindergarten program with a maximum class size of 20 students per class. St. Jude offers a morning session, an afternoon session, and an extended day session available to morning students.
Kindergarten Class Times:
Morning: 7:50a.m. - 10:30a.m.
Afternoon: 11:30a.m. - 2:20p.m.
Extended Day Kindergarten 7:40a.m. – 2:20p.m.
Extended Care Program:
Students enrolled in morning kindergarten have the option of remaining at St. Jude for an extended care program until the end of the full school day at 2:20 for an additional fee. The extended care program is housed in a classroom within the school building. Kindergarten students are also eligible for the regular aftercare program that allows students to remain at school in a supervised setting from 2:20 - 6:00.
Kindergarteners may take the morning bus or the afternoon bus if their school district of residence currently provides busing to St. Jude. At this time, there is no transportation from either the Oak Hills or Three Rivers School Districts at mid-day.
Kindergarten registration will take place along with the all-school registration in mid-February. Information will be available in the church bulletin, web site and at the school open house in January.
While priority is given to children of St. Jude Parish families, families of kindergarteners are not required to be members of St. Jude Parish. Families of kindergarteners that are members of a Catholic parish that does not offer a kindergarten program at their school will be eligible for in-parish tuition.
Families are always welcome to schedule personal tours of St. Jude. We encourage you to meet with our administration to discuss classes and programs available while having the opportunity to ask any additional questions.
