Welcome to St. Jude School!
“Even though I have only attended St. Jude for two years, I still feel a special bond to this school and the people here. During my first year attending St. Jude, I was welcomed right away and felt right at home. It is unexplainable how wonderful St. Jude is, and how it is full of kind and loving people. These last two years here have been great, academically and socially.” Eighth Grade Student Graduation Speaker, St. Jude School
St. Jude School is a Catholic Christian community dedicated to sharing our beliefs, values, and gifts through our personal witness and faith commitment. With parental support, we enable each student to develop a strong foundation built on religious, academic, emotional, and social formation. Children of all religions, cultures, races and economic backgrounds are welcome at St. Jude School.
St. Jude is a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. Our school motto is “Going Above and Beyond in Learning and Serving” and we live out this motto by continually evaluating our educational programs and practices to ensure that we are able to meet the needs of all of our students. St. Jude School is an Ohio EdChoice, Jon Peterson and Ohio Autism scholarship approved school. We are conveniently located at 594 Poplar Street in Elyria near highways 57 and 480 and just down the street from Elyria Catholic High School. St. Jude is attended from students from 20 different communities.
We invite you to come and explore all that St. Jude School has to offer your student! Whether your child is a potential new student to our preschool or kindergarten programs, or a transfer student into an older grade, we welcome them with open arms into our school family. There are many opportunities to visit St. Jude School to see if our school is the right fit for your family. Our annual Open House is the last Sunday in January from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. and provides an excellent opportunity to meet our teachers, staff, current parents and students. Individual tours can also be scheduled at your convenience by calling the school office at (440) 366-1681. In addition, students are also invited to come and shadow with their class. Our annual Shadow Day is held in the spring. Individual shadow days can also be arranged by contacting the school office. St. Jude also hosts a New/Prospective Parent Breakfast in conjunction with the annual Shadow Day. This breakfast helps provide parents and guardians with the opportunity to tour while our school is in session.
