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.

Judge Memorial Catholic High School is well-known for its commitment to academic excellence, character building, sportsmanship, and for producing well-rounded graduates who are ready to make a difference. Students learn the value of hard work, generosity toward others, and respect. Judge Memorial is recognized and respected for challenging students of all races and socio-economic backgrounds to reach their full potential, to prepare for the rigors of a university education, to participate in community service, and, ultimately, to return a full measure of value and character to society. Simply put, Judge Memorial students are prepared for success.

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.
