Principal’s Message

Dear Parents, Students, Alumni, and guests of this site,

Thank you for visiting our website. My hope while you peruse our site is that you can feel the joy that permeates our school. Our students are our greatest asset and we at St. Jude put the students first in everything we do. I believe that the proof of that is in the smiles and triumphs we have highlighted on our site. 

St. Jude School, established in 1955, is a member of the Catholic Independent Schools Vancouver Archdiocese. We are a Christ-centered school that seeks to nurture the whole child in order to build God’s kingdom. Our goal is to develop the physical, mental, emotional, and social aspects of each child. As staff, we work in collaboration with each other, with parents, and students to ensure that each child is supported in their individual growth individually, academically, and spiritually. The education of the whole child requires that parents and teachers partner their efforts and work towards the same common goal of guiding children in becoming the person God intends them to be.

At St. Jude School, we are committed to providing your child with a strong academic foundation that will empower them to become positive leaders for the community. We are committed to providing your child with an array of extra curricular opportunities from sports teams to drama club to orchestra so that they can discover their talents that extend beyond the classroom walls. We are committed to providing a safe and caring environment for your child so that they can develop friendships and take risks in their learning. We are committed to providing your child with a firm understanding of their faith and God’s plan for them so that our children are equipped to make sound moral decisions.

I am grateful for being able to work alongside dedicated teachers, support staff, and parents who are deeply committed to our school community and our Catholic faith.



Yours in Christ,


Carolyn Smillie
