For many years, St. Jude Catholic
School has opened its doors to instructing children in the Catholic faith
and providing a quality academic education - both which give a firm foundation
for the future.
in March 1929 as Sharon Terrace School, the Sisters of Providence taught
105 students in grades one through four. When school opened that fall,
classes expanded to include grades five through eight with enrollment tripling,
growing and building despite the Depression. Today, St. Jude Catholic
School educates students in grades preschool, kindergarten, and one through
eight. Enrollment has expanded to over 500 students, while maintaining
small class sizes.
St. Jude's parishioners built a new church leaving the old church building
free to house the school. The beautiful Spanish-style structure now
houses grades kindergarten through eight, state-of-the-art computer lab,
library, auditorium, gymnasium, and classes in music, art, band, and drama.
