 School Mission Statement

Saint Jude Catholic School is an elementary school in the Dominican tradition.  In partnership with parents, we offer children an excellent academic and religious education.  We provide a Christ-centered atmosphere in which students may grow in knowledge, truth and love.

 The goal of St. Jude Catholic School is to nurture a collaborative effort between parents, educators and clergy, to teach students the Catholic faith, the love of Jesus as a way of life, to instill academic excellence, to inspire a love of learning and to develop a sense of personal responsibility.

About St. Jude

​St. Jude Catholic School is a Pre-Kindergarten (half day three-year-old Pre-Kindergarten and full day four-year-old Pre-Kindergarten) through 8th grade elementary and middle school under the Diocese of Joliet Catholic Schools Office. 

The St. Jude Catholic School Difference

St. Jude School is staffed by experienced and faith-filled faculty, including the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia. In the Dominican tradition, our faculty teaches a love of God that is rooted in prayer, supported in community, committed to truth and united in love. This integration of values and academics enables each student to grow as a whole person – body, mind and spirit.

 We invite you to stop by for a visit to experience the St. Jude Catholic School difference.
