Judson International School was founded in Pasadena in 1991 as William Carey Academy, for children of staff families, and became Judson in 2001 when it was opened up to students from the local and international communities. In 2019 Judson moved to our new campus in Eagle Rock.
Judson uses the International Christian Curriculum which was developed at the school. It is unique in many ways and offers a sound education with a global perspective to both American and international students. Many missionary children and international students are part of the student body. Since 2008, Judson has been authorized to issue the form I-20 and has seen its program for international students grow significantly
In 2012, we added Judson High School, an accredited Christian high school which offers the Judson core values of small class size, international focus, community and "real books." In addition to our high academic standards, our high school has CIF sports teams, ASB, journalism, performing arts and a 1:1 Chromebook program. Our SAT scores are in the 80th percentile and our students have received acceptances to nationally ranked universities and colleges such as University of California Santa Barbara, University of Southern California, Chapman University, Biola University, California State University, Loyola Marymount, and Pepperdine.
Over the years our program has grown and prospered. We offer art, computer, music and Spanish beginning in Kindergarten. We have an excellent athletic program with junior high sports through Foothill Sports League and high school sports through the California Interscholastic Federation. Our creative arts program is flourishing with a Creative Arts Night and Poetry Out Loud in the fall and all-school musical in the spring. We have weekly chapels with student chaplains and student-led worship, plus an annual Spiritual Emphasis Week. Each year from grades 7 up, our students participate in missions weeks to our city and beyond.
Judson's mission is to partner with parents in educating children who will grow in knowledge, understanding and wisdom to become leaders in God's Kingdom and today's world. We are very happy to be part of the Judson school and community and would love to have you join us.
