The St. Jude's Academy family includes you!
Parent involvement is integral to St. Jude’s Academy and our students’ success. The St. Jude’s Academy Parent Guild generously volunteers their time to help plan events and fundraisers and raise involvement for our wholesome community. The help that our dedicated parents and families put in significantly improves and enriches our school culture, environment and the opportunities that we can offer to our students. We see our school as a family because our community is always welcoming, warm and accepting of others. We value every individual part of St. Jude’s Academy, including everyone from Junior Kindergarten students to involved Upper School parents to faculty and support staff. Every unique member of the St. Jude’s Academy family has an individual voice and is heard.

“Thank you so much for taking the initiative to follow up with me on top of the increased classroom demands this year – I am very appreciative of all the emails you have been sending out to keep parents informed. I am a nurse in critical care and I know first-hand the uncertainty and overwhelming uneasiness teachers are facing. Mom to Mom, woman to woman, HERO to HERO, I stand in solidarity with you and support ALL of your efforts. I just want her to be happy and enjoy her time at school. She is an only child and along with everyone else, it has been a very challenging 6 months for us being trapped at home. I understand parents are not allowed in the school, but if there is anything I can do from home to lighten your burden please do not hesitate to reach out. Whether it’s activity ideas or helping with creating exercises for the class – we are in this together!”
“He’s having a great time, and we’re enjoying looking at all the pictures and reading the journal. A big thank you to all of you for helping with this. The team at school is doing an amazing job!”

“My kids enjoy the small, tight-knit community. Every teacher and faculty member knows them by name and knows who their siblings are in the school. They have made friendships at St. Jude’s that will last them a lifetime. The kids enjoy teachers who allow them to express themselves and who listen to their ideas, even if it is different from their own. Encouraging my kids to think for themselves is what I appreciate the most from St. Jude’s. The teachers who have really connected with my kids are the ones who look at them not as students, but as human beings that are going to change the world for the better.”
“You guys are doing a wonderful job. I appreciate all the effort. I checked out the public e-learning platform that launched on the weekend and it’s a joke. You guys are going above and beyond.
“Just a note to let the school know how well the online lessons are going for our sons. Though it has only been three days, so far they are engaged and working at their stations consistently.
A special mention for our teacher who is amazing. She’s conducting online lessons with gusto. Offline, she checks through students’ work and responds with comments or connections, keeping parents in the loop. We are very appreciative of her efforts.”
“I do want to commend you both and all the teachers at SJA.
The ease with which you all have executed the virtual learning platform in a short period of time has been great.
“We really appreciate all your and everyone’s effort from the SJA team, blessed to be part of the St. Jude’s family.”
“I hope you and all of the SJA staff are keeping well.
A quick note to say that you are doing great! I sincerely appreciate all of the efforts to keep the learning going, the home delivery of tools and the constant communication from teachers.
Keep up the good work!”

One of our main platforms, ManageBac, recently contacted us to congratulate our success!
The ManageBac team “noticed that St. Jude’s Academy students and staff have been logging in quite a bit over the last month. This is very impressive, especially given the current situation!” ManageBac wanted to know what we have been doing to garner this success and even asked what advice we could offer other schools!
St. Jude’s Academy is a caring and resilient community that will support one another during the campus closure.
