Judge Memorial Catholic High School exists to provide a high quality college preparatory secondary academic education within a diverse Christian atmosphere. In accordance with our philosophy, education at Judge Memorial is designed to promote spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical, and social growth in a respectful, safe, and caring environment. Respect for oneself, for one another, for the learning process, and for the physical environment should be the hallmarks of all who form the Judge family.

The Judge faculty works with students to develop critical thinking, logic, creativity, communication, and a strong work ethic through coursework, class interaction and co-curricular activities. Instructors at Judge Memorial Catholic High School believe that learning requires a disciplined atmosphere that fosters both personal freedom and responsibility for one's decisions.

One value that cuts across all disciplines is a solid foundation in writing. These essential skills are expected for any writing assignment.

Since we believe learning never ends, Judge Memorial offers an impressive array of summer opportunities and courses.
