Our Values

Our Mission

From Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and the brother of James.
To those who have been called by God.
Who live in the love of God the Father and the protection of Jesus Christ.
May mercy, peace and love be yours in full measure and those you serve.

St. Jude the Apostle School of Wynantskill, New York is an educational ministry of St. Jude the Apostle Parish. In the spirit of Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ, we are committed to teaching children Christian values in a caring, nurturing environment within our Pre-K through Grade Six elementary school. Our student body is comprised of children from throughout the Capital District, coming from a variety of backgrounds.

St. Jude the Apostle School is dedicated to providing excellent academic programs that enable every child to develop spiritually, intellectually, socially and emotionally. The school follows the New York State and Diocesan curriculum guidelines in religion, language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, technology, art, music, Spanish, physical education and library. As the first teachers of their children, parents are encouraged to assist in guiding the children to achieve their full potential.

We teach our students to value knowledge as a means of learning. A variety of methods are used to obtain the goals of New York State and Diocesan curriculum. In addition to traditional methodology, students participate in a variety of integrated hands-on-learning activities that compliment the curriculum.

The children of St. Jude the Apostle School seek truth, practice Christian virtues, and respect all people, thus imitating Christ in their daily lives.

Our Philosophy

The faculty and staff at St. Jude the Apostle School are committed to the belief that our school exists for the purpose of educating children to be loving, knowledgeable, productive individuals who have the primary responsibility of developing their talents so as to be pleasing to God, our Creator.

We believe that God intended for each of us to develop our intellects in order that we might come to know Him, to love Him, and to develop a more personal relationship with Him.

We believe in the strength of the family and we believe that parents are indeed the primary educators for their children. We further believe that we must work collaboratively with parents in teaching our children those Christian concepts that will guide them through life and enable them to successfully fulfill their personal missions here on earth.

We are mindful that parents and teachers must act as exemplary role models for children. It is primarily for this reason that we encourage parents to become involved and to actively participate in the business of the school. Such a partnership not only gives children the security of knowing that everyone is working towards the same goals, but it also demonstrates that genuine love and caring often are the by-products when people demonstrate respect for one another.
