Educating the minds and souls of our students in the spirit of the gentleman saint, St. Francis de Sales

Welcome from the President

Dear Parents & Guardians,

The illustrated quote from Michael Jordan demonstrates what differentiates Father Judge High School from the rest of the area high schools:  six-plus decades of educating over 25,000 young men on Solly Avenue, “to be who they are and to be that well.”


As one of those 25,000 graduates, I take pride in meeting countless grads who have, “made it happen,” and I want the same for your son.   As the new President of Father Judge, I see my primary job as making sure your son has every opportunity to succeed here and well into the future.  Success is earned, and as such, we need to work together to see our boys achieve it.   I need you to push your son, while we pull him, collectively getting him engaged in his education, and continually opening new doors and new possibilities for him.   Please know I appreciate the sacrifices you make each day to afford your son a Judge education.   Moving forward, please express to your son, the need for him to be a part of his own success, and the need for him to take advantage of the opportunities provided so that he too can leave 3301 Solly Avenue and upon graduation, go out and “make it happen.”

Wishing all of our young Crusaders a Successful School Year!


Brian Patrick King ‘97
