To begin the Online Application process for Grades PK3 - 8, Create an Account. Upon account creation, you will receive an email containing a verification link. Once your email address has been verified, log in to your account and Create A New Student Application for your child.

All kindergarten students will be required to take the Dial-4 Kindergarten Readiness Assessment during Kindergarten Phase-in at the beginning of the new school year. A Parish Affiliation Form is required for ALL Catholic applicants, regardless of the Parish to which you belong. Click here to download the 2024/2025 Parish Affiliation Form.

We just wanted to share the news with you that your alumnus, Isaias B., was asked to take an entrance exam for a school in a city close to us. He scored in the top one percent and received a scholarship. He was also placed in 9th grade, skipping 8th. Isaias had some very dear teachers for elementary, and grew up attending St. Jude School, so we wanted to let you know. He also wanted to share this with your awesome middle school team of teachers. We thank St. Jude for a strong foundation for all our children.
