Welcome to St. Jude of the Lake Catholic School

St. Jude of the Lake School is a vibrant, high-performing Catholic community for students in kindergarten through grade 5. We are dedicated to our students’ intellectual, personal and spiritual development, and we demonstrate this through our small class sizes, our faith-based curriculum, our technology-driven academics, and our top-ranking performance with state education standards.

Currently, St. Jude of the Lake School is the only Catholic International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program School in the Midwest. As such, we are recognized for our well-rounded curriculum that fully prepares students for their future, for being on the leading edge of Catholic elementary education, and for investing in our future and the future of our students.

This October, St. Jude of the Lake School will be celebrating its 60th anniversary of Catholic Education in the North East Metro.  The School Advisory Council (SAC) is hard at work pulling together an updated alumni database to help get the word out.  If there is anyone out there that would like to lend a hand with this project. Please contact Cressy Epperly, St. Jude of the Lake School principal or Mike Maas, SAC member.

Dictionary Project

The 3rd graders at St. Jude of the Lake were visited by a representative from the America Legion this past week.
Over the years our students have participated in the the Dictionary Project which provides a Student Dictionary for the student's personal use to each third grade student. The dictionaries will assist the teachers in helping students become active readers, good writers, creative thinkers and resourceful learners. The students are encouraged to keep and use their dictionaries throughout their school career.

A BIG Thank You goes out to the American Legion.  God Bless You!



Our Fantastic Staff for 2014-15 School Year Welcome You!

 It has been beautiful to se the painstaking preparations that our teachers have put into getting ready for the children’s arrival.  As you know we have a few new teachers who have been welcomed with open arms by our faculty and are bringing wonderful new ideas to an already vibrant staff.  All of the staff has come in throughout the summer in addition to attending workshops on STEM, reading, and other topic areas.  We are blessed to have such dedicated teachers.  I look forward to another wonderful year with many blessings in store for each of us.  Let us continue to pray for each other!
