 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 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.
