School code:  CEEB# 450375


Judge Memorial Catholic High School's curriculum is college preparatory in nature and includes accelerated programs consisting of Honors and Advanced Placement courses. Theology, English, fine arts, mathematics, science, social students and world languages form the core. The academic departments offer an extensive array of curricular options and levels appropriate for each learner. The extensive variety of courses offered place an emphasis on critical thinking, communication, and technology integration with content that prompts analysis, examination, writing, and discussion.
Students in 9th and 10th grade are required to take eight full credits per year. Students in grade 11th and 12th are required to take a minimum of seven full credits per year. 
Our curriculum and instructional practices are reviewed regularly to ensure that what we provide to our students is the best in the Intermountain West, in the United States and around the world. We are committed to providing academic opportunities that are both rigorous and relevant, opportunities that will help our students achieve their dreams.
We know that expectations are high in everything at Judge –activities, athletics, the arts – but perhaps nowhere more so than academics. Judge Memorial fosters each individual's excellence. We celebrate the fact that everyone learns differently, and we work with each student to identify and cultivate specific interests and goals in a challenging and stimulating educational environment. As a school community, we are united in making sure all our students are challenged and supported.
The Judge faculty works with students to develop logic, creativity, communication, and a strong work ethic through coursework, class interaction and co-curricular activities. Instructors at Judge Memorial believe that learning requires a disciplined atmosphere that fosters both personal freedom and responsibility for one's decisions. Our faculty and staff appreciate the commitment and sacrifice parents make to give students the gift of a Catholic education… a Judge education.  As a school community, we take that trust very seriously.
Judge Memorial graduates attend a wide variety of fine colleges and universities throughout the country. Showing the return on investment parents receive from sending their children to Judge Memorial, and the measurable value of a Judge Memorial education, our last four graduating classes have earned an average of $18.2 million in college scholarships and renewable grants. Now that is a return on your investment.
