Extracurricular Programs

St. Jude’s Academy offers a variety of Extracurricular Programs to students in our Lower School. Instead of racing to pick your child up to drive them to an after school program, St. Jude’s Academy offers many programs right at school!

Discovering new interests and new talents, and committing to activities beyond academics allows our students the opportunity to attempt something new, gather genuine skills, and to experience, learn, and grow!

These programs run after school and are offered all year. Some programs are offered to specific ages while others are open to all Lower School students. These Extracurricular Programs are optional and not part of regular in-class work.
