Principal's Message

It is both and honor and a privilege to assume the duties of Principal, Father Judge High School.  In the tradition of St. Francis deSales, we who have the privilege of teaching, coaching, and leading Father Judge students will work tirelessly in developing skills and personal traits our Father Judge graduates will use in the workforce, at the university level, and in public service roles in the military, police and fire departments, and as emergency responders.  Our Father Judge students and their families’ expectations include developing the qualities of being determined, hard-working, creative and caring, and doing it well. Father Judge graduates also carry these qualities with them throughout their lives and practice Salesian virtues in every aspect of their work and personal lives. We expect our graduates to have presence of mind, and more importantly, when they leave Father Judge as a graduate, they are known and recognized simply - “he’s a Judge guy.”  Our students and the extended Father Judge community understand the importance and significance of being that Father Judge guy - we wear the title proudly.

Father Judge’s academic reputation is well established and is attributable to the tireless efforts of a dedicated and talented faculty and a strong board of directors and leadership team.  Father Judge currently offers 9 advanced placement (AP) courses with plans to offer more AP courses. Technology is essential to our curriculum and in preparing our students for the future. Every student is provided with a Chromebook laptop computer for their academic career at Father Judge.   Our graduates go places: most competitive colleges and universities, trade and technical schools, entrepreneurial careers and into public service as members of the military, police, fire or emergency services. The curriculum is rigorous and versatile, and we will challenge young men to develop themselves mentally, physically, and spiritually.  

Excellence abounds at Father Judge and all students have opportunities for a wide range of extracurricular activities.  These include interscholastic sports, student government, Model United Nations, technology competitions, robotics, among the many offerings.  Our dedicated staff of coaches, advisors and volunteers are committed to helping our young men achieve the goals they set for themselves and their teammates.  If you're a high-school age young man looking to become part of something bigger than yourself, take up the challenge, and visit us.  We would love to give you a tour and share with you how you too can become that Judge guy.

Mr. Peter D. Chapla
