“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all." – Aristotle
Welcome back to all returning students and their families, and a big WELCOME to all of our new Crusaders and their families. Please 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.
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 we move forward into the 2019-2020 school year we have invested in the following Academic Offerings:
I want each student 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.”
Along with participation, I feel communication is crucial to the success of your son’s experience at Father Judge. I ask you to please stay on top of your son to ensure he is staying on task with homework and studies. Please use PowerSchool to monitor his progress and reach out to his teachers to address matters in real time when you have any concerns. Together we can ensure that his learning experience will be a positive one with the mindset focused on his growth mentally, spiritually and physically.
With Salesian Spirit & Crusader Pride,
Brian Patrick King ‘97 M.Ed.
