About Us

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Sts. Simon & Jude School website! We are a vibrant school community filled with bright, joyful, motivated young people, and gifted and devoted teachers. Our outstanding faculty and staff motivate our students to flourish in a warm, welcoming environment founded on Christian values. For 47 years the Franciscan community of Sts. Simon & Jude has utilized faith, tradition and a focus on excellence to prepare our students for the eventual rigors of a challenging high school curriculum. Many of our graduates are “accepted with distinction” at both Catholic high schools and public high schools within Orange County.

Standardized test scores for students at Sts. Simon & Jude School are consistently well above both the national average and the Diocesan average. Our most recent test scores ranked between 20%-30% above the national average.

We do all of this work within a caring environment with a Catholic Identity that is expressed in thought, word and deed. Our students are inspired to become grounded, committed people of faith who possess unquestionable integrity. Additionally, we actively and gladly solicit the involvement of parents in the learning process with their children, and welcome their partnership in the planning of social activities and special events for our school and parish community.

So whether you have a pre-school child for whom you are selecting a “school home” for the next nine years, or searching out a new learning environment for your children, I welcome you to spend a few moments exploring our site to learn more about Sts. Simon & Jude School and how we can help your children reach their true potential. We hope that your visit to our website will inspire you to join our family of lifelong learners! Come and experience Sts. Simon & Jude School by calling our school office at 714-962-4451 to schedule a tour of our wonderful campus. I look forward to welcoming you to SSJ, home of the Dolphins!
