PJAS- Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science 
is a statewide organization of junior and senior high school students designed to stimulate and promote interest in science among its members through the development of research projects and investigations. 

Students at St Jude work hard to create and present their own research using the scientific method. They chose topics of research from various science fields, including: behavioral science, botany, biology, physics and chemistry. The students then present their research to a panel of judges at the regional competition. If they qualify, they have the opportunity to then compete at the state level at the yearly state competition held at Penn State Main Campus.  
 

Performing Arts

 

Students at St. Jude's have opportunities to experience the Arts.  Our Annual Christmas Program includes grades Pre-k to Gr. 5.  Each Spring grades 2 & 3 put on a play for all to enjoy.  Our students also compete in the Diocesan Forensics Competition.  Our Sign Language Club shares their skill at various events.

Highlight of the year is our Artist in Residence Program!  Through the years our students have experienced various artist and mediums. Our PTG provides our students with a 20 day Artist in Residence.  They still speak of their favorite Mr. Theo, who with the help of the students put on a Broadway Show.
