Principal's Message

Welcome to Father Judge High School!

If you are new to Father Judge, you have entered into a special place in which your student(s) will experience a close-knit brotherhood, an educational community that develops its students mentally, physically, and spiritually in the spirit and tradition of the gentleman saint, Francis deSales.

From dedicated teachers and staff to a rich history of excellence, Father Judge High School has established itself as a staple in the Northeast Philadelphia community and beyond.  It is my honor to serve this community as a member of the Father Judge family and as a priest in the Oblates of St. Francis deSales, the religious order that founded Father Judge in 1954.

I enthusiastically embrace the task of continuing to utilize our outstanding resources to ensure that all students are prepared with the necessary skills and knowledge to be productive citizens as they continue their lives as gentlemen.

Our hope is that this website will provide you with greater insight about the quality of education and programming that takes place at Father Judge on a daily basis. We hope it serves as a great resource to you. We also invite you to visit our campus for a first-hand experience of the vibrant school community that is Father Judge.

In Salesian spirit and Crusader pride,


Rev. John A. Kolodziej, OSFS
(Interim) Principal
