Welcome to St. Judes Academy
St. Judes Academy provides students with the necessary tools to be successful and pursue personal excellence. Our dedicated teachers inspire students to identify their intellectual passions and cultivate their personal strengths. The International Baccalaureate (IB) offers a rigorous approach to education that enables our students to attain mastery in their skills. Additionally, students develop into intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically holistic well-beings.
St. Judes Academy places an emphasis on learning the fundamentals in reading, writing, and math. To monitor the growth of our students, teachers assess students up to three times a year in each area. This allows our teachers to identify students strengths and opportunities, and help challenge or support them in specific areas. We recognize that communication is a key factor to students success therefore, we communicate information to parents through our unit phone calls or parent teacher interviews.Furthermore, parents have 24-hour access to teacher blogs and e-mails.
Our program is not only academically sound; we stress the importance of character development. Our students strive to be IB learners by attaining the following attributes:
