Why parents choose St. Jude’s Academy

We are a school that focuses on the development of the whole child, while ensuring an excellent preparation for their future in an ever-changing world. Our smaller classes allow for differentiation within the class, and a more personal approach to learning.

We understand that curricula can be demanding due to the amount of content. We make sure that the pace of learning is such that students are confident that they are ready to proceed to the next level.
In our caring and vibrant community, students will be motivated and guided to take ownership of their intellectual and moral growth, and develop the self-esteem and courage they will need to deal successfully with the challenges and opportunities that high school and university hold.

The IB Difference

St. Jude's Academy is an authorized Continuum IB World School. That means that every grade from JK to grade 12 is not only taught using IB curriculum, but that we've been inspected and approved as an accredited IB program at every grade. We are one of only a few schools, public or private, in the GTA (and currently the only school in Peel Region) to have this distinction.

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

To this end, the organization works with schools, governments, and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.


Through a rigorous curriculum and extensive co-curricular program, St. Jude’s Academy encourages each student to develop an inquisitive, creative mind, and strong moral character. St. Jude’s Academy inspires reflection, social development, and a well-defined school spirit. Students are prepared for scholarship and leadership in a rapidly changing world. St. Jude’s Academy facilitates students’ global understanding, environmental stewardship, and dedication to social service, while maintaining a vibrant and ethical community that embraces diversity.
