Philosophy / Mission
St. Jude School is dedicated to quality education and the development of the whole person in mind, body and spirit. Our aim is to promote academic excellence through the acquisition of basic skills, good work habits, self-esteem, a sense of responsibility and self-discipline. Every student is encouraged to work to the best of his/her abilities. The cooperative involvement of all partners of St. Jude School is strongly encouraged in order to build a curriculum and develop activities which best respond to the needs of our students and our school community.
St. Jude School is located north of Montreal in picturesque Deux- Montagnes, Quebec. The school houses 364 students and has a long and proud history of academic excellence.
