St. Jude's Academy is the leading private IB World School in Mississauga.
We’re different. As the leading nondenominational, university preparatory IB private school in Mississauga, our graduates are highly sought after. The first fully accredited IB Primary Years Programme (JK-Grade 6), Middle Years Programme (Grades 7-10) and Diploma Programme (Grades 11-12) emphasize fundamentals and effective learning habits, resulting in 100% of our graduates being accepted into the university of their choice. Behind their success is a strong community of parents and a faculty of IB World leaders, including specialists in Phys. Ed, the Arts and languages, who care for each and every student. This individualized approach to learning encourages students to think critically, problem-solve and inquire for themselves. St. Jude’s Academy graduates are equipped with the skills they need to excel in university and in life, and are inspired to confidently make their mark in the world. In our classrooms, students participate in hands-on activities that enrich their understanding and unique, personalized support is always readily available.
Why parents choose St. Jude's Academy
At St. Jude’s Academy, we prioritize the development of effective learning habits, confidence, strong work ethic and independence. Smaller classes foster a personal, individualized approach to learning, meaning that our students receive comprehensive support in preparation for university. We are dedicated to ensuring our students’ success, as well as ensuring that they continue to succeed after their time here. Graduates leave St. Jude’s Academy with lifelong skills under their belt, allowing them a smooth transition into university and beyond.
We believe that academic rigour is just one part of a student’s success. Student wellbeing matters to us, and it plays a large role in the development of healthy learning habits, self-esteem and motivation. Enriched curricula can sometimes become demanding — we pace learning to make sure that students are confident in their abilities before proceeding to new concepts. Along with strong academic skills, students are taught important values that will help them approach the ups and downs of life from an ethical, responsible perspective.
