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.

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!
