Welcome to St. Jude

Welcome to St. Jude!

If you are currently part of the St. Jude family, please know how grateful we are for the sacrifices you make to send your children to St. Jude. We appreciate all of your volunteer hours, the time you spend learning with your children, and your support of the faculty and staff. Thanks for being part of the St. Jude Family!

If you are considering St. Jude for your child, we would like to extend a warm welcome! St. Jude has been educating young people on the west side of Cincinnati for 60 years and is known for its welcoming community, rich tradition, and dedicated families.  Our school mascot is a Bulldog and our school colors are crimson and gold. 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. Students in grades 1-8 attend weekly Wednesday Mass and partake in daily religious education classes.  Parents and grandparents are welcome to celebrate Mass and Holy Days with the school by sitting with their children’s classes.  It is traditions such as community Mass that make St. Jude a truly special place for families and students to learn and grow.

St. Jude has large school advantages with a small school feel and endless possibilities.  Our school includes 505 students and 40 educators who focused on educating the whole child. With some exception, the class size in grades K-3 is kept small to 20 students, and the class size in grades 4-8 is kept to 30 students.   St. Jude has a beautiful campus with a church, large school building, Parish Center and picturesque athletic fields. Some of our newest facilities include interactive kindergarten classrooms, intervention and speech resource rooms, and the Parish Center complete with a contemporary library, gymnasium, art room,  music facility and technology classroom. The school also offers technology integrated classrooms fit with Clevertouch boards and Chromebooks.

We invite you to join our community.  The best way to learn more about St. Jude is to schedule a school tour. Once on campus, you will witness the welcoming atmosphere, engaged students, and rich traditions.
