St. Jude of the Lake School is a Catholic community dedicated to fully preparing children for their future by developing their faith, minds, and character.
We strive to ensure our students are inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who understand and respect the multi-cultured world in which we live. We do this by providing a nurturing environment in which all students have the opportunity to pursue their individual intellectual abilities and discover their unique gifts.We are committed to academic excellence, worship, and service to others; our students achieve a deeper awareness of their responsibility to God, community, the world at large, and themselves.

The District provides transport to/from St. Jude of the Lake for all students within the Mahtomedi School District.
We offer fee-based on-site care before school from 7:30 am and after school until 5:30 pm.
We provide fresh, healthy, chef-prepared meals cooked on site to our students.
We offer tuition payment support through the St. Jude of the Lake Angel Fund.
A Message From the Principal
As principal, it is very important to me that everyone who steps through our doors, whether it be a staff member, parent, student or visitor, is excited to be here. The positive attitude and welcoming setting enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, nurturing environment and grow our school community, while furthering our mission of providing a strong Catholic foundation for our students.
St. Jude recognizes the importance of providing a robust array of enrichment opportunities for students in all grades and of all abilities.
We integrate our Catholic faith into our every day teachings. Our students begin each day with prayer, attend weekly Mass, complete Sacramental preparation and participate in acts of community service.
