“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all" – Aristotle
Welcome back to all returning families, and a big WELCOME to all new families. We are very excited for the new school year, and encourage you, to encourage your son, to get involved ASAP! Student engagement matters, and statistics show that those who are involved have higher levels of success. Judge’s Athletic Department currently offers 14 PIAA sports and 2 Club Sports. There are also 16 Activities and Clubs, so there is something for everyone to be a part of here at Father Judge.
After successfully completing the Middle States Accreditation process last year, and with a new Administration led by new Principal, Mr. William Schilling '76, we are poised to begin a new era of student-focused growth and opportunities. As I have stated before, it is not our job to tell your son what to be, it is our job to give him every opportunity and experience so that he can determine where to best move ahead in life and maximize his God-given potential. Every young man is different and our goal is to continue to differentiate how we educate and invest in the school and our faculty to provide new electives, AP courses and career pathway experiences for our students.
In the end, my desire remains the same as it was since the day I took the position of President, and that is for your son to not “just be” something, rather, I want him to live the words of St. Francis DeSales to be the best version of himself he can be each day, not only during his time here as a student, but for the rest of his life. I want him to, “Be who he is, and be that well.”
Thank You for all of your sacrifices to give your son a Father Judge High School Education.
With Salesian Spirit & Crusader Pride,
Brian Patrick King ‘97
