“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 of our new Crusaders and their families. We are very excited about the new school year, and we encourage you to encourage your son to get involved! Student engagement is important and statistics show that those who are involved in extra-curricular activities achieve higher levels of success. Our Athletics Program currently offers 14 PIAA sports and 2 club sports. There are also 16 activities and clubs, so there is something for everyone here at Father Judge.
Our new Principal, Mr. Peter Chapla, and his dynamic Administration are laser-focused on educational growth and enrichment opportunities for all of our students. As I have stated before, it is not our job to tell your son what to be, instead, it is our job to give him every opportunity and experience so that he can determine the best life path to maximize his God-given potential. Every young man is different, and as such it is our goal to differentiate how we educate and invest in our school and faculty to provide new electives, Advanced Placement courses and career pathway experiences for our students.
I want each of our students to step outside his comfort zone and strive for more, not “just be” something. Rather I want him to live the words of our patron St. Francis de Sales 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. In the words of St. Francis de Sales, I want him to, “be who he is, and be that well.”
With Salesian Spirit & Crusader Pride,
Brian Patrick King ‘97 M.Ed.
