It is with a tremendous sense of joy that we fully commit to the beautiful mission of Catholic education. The many connections made between past, present, and future students reinforce the vision that we are a part of something much larger than ourselves. I am grateful for my role in continuing this connection.
The importance of Catholic Schools is needed now more than ever. Judge Memorial Catholic High School is that bastion of hope for our next generation of leaders. By focusing on the cura personalis, or “care for the whole person”, we challenge our students to lead with their hearts along with their minds. The development of a child’s conscience is as important as the development of their academic skills. This is accomplished through a continued partnership with parents, working together to strengthen each child to their full potential. Why do we do this? We do this because our children are worth it! They are worth the long hours; they are worth the emotional investment; they are worth the opening of our hearts.
A wonderful former high school literature teacher stated, “You must not teach just content, but the values and customs of life. …There are three things that you must transmit: how to love, how to understand which values and customs create harmony in society. ...Teachers must aim to build an educational relationship with each student, who must feel welcomed and loved for what he or she is with all of their limitations and potential.” That former high school teacher now goes by the name of Pope Francis. May his works and actions continue to inspire each one of us. Please continue to pray for and support our faculty and staff as we follow his example.
I am very grateful for your interest in Judge Memorial Catholic High School. I encourage you to come visit Judge and witness first-hand our devoted staff and committed students. It is through their dedication, their determination, their connection, and their love of one another that celebrates the great tradition that is Judge Memorial Catholic High School.
With a heartfelt sense of appreciation, thank you for considering Judge Memorial.
