Mr. Aaron Sawatsky – Head of School
St. Jude’s Academy
The Maples Academy
As head of the school, I’d like to tell you why leading this energetic school means so much to me, and why I hope you’ll consider joining us at SJA. Deciding where to go to school may very well be one of the most important decisions a parent can make.
In our caring and vibrant community, students will be motivated and guided to take ownership of their intellectual and moral growth, and develop the self-esteem and courage they will need to deal successfully with the challenges and opportunities that high school and university hold. The frequent interaction and dialogue among our students, faculty and staff foster quality relationships based on trust and respect. It is this supportive environment that encourages inquisitiveness and continuous learning.
As the pace of change and the volume of new knowledge and information reach bewildering proportions, we at St. Jude’s Academy face the future confidently anchored in the strength of our founding values. Our goal of superior performance and our ethos of service prevail. We continue to pursue excellence in the development of our students’ interests, talents and character, while fulfilling our commitment to nurture the quality of caring for others.
I invite you to visit us so that you can experience the St. Jude’s spirit. We are delighted to learn of your interest in our school, and look forward to answering any questions you might have.
