Welcome to SS. Simon & Jude Cathedral School!

Serving Pre-K through 8th Grades

Our school first opened in 1954 under the guidance of five brave nuns from Navan, Ireland and we’ve been “Alive with the Spirit” ever since! We are more than just a school or parish – we’re truly a community! Our Loreto Sisters are still here with us 69 years later, and their loving direction along with a dedicated and highly educated lay staff, coupled with our new/remodeled state of the art facilities have continued our tradition as a vibrant, thriving school.

We are fully accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and we breathe into every subject and extracurricular activity, the teachings of Jesus Christ. Our students’ test scores are well above Diocesan standards, and last year 85% of our graduates went on to Catholic high schools. We have over 4,300 alumni and many of them continue to send their own children to our school – 1 of every 9 students to be exact!

Ss. Simon and Jude Cathedral School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in admissions or in the administration of its educational policies or other school-administered programs.
