“Education is the food of youth, the delight of old age, the ornament of prosperity, the refuge and comfort of adversity, and the provocation to grace in the soul.”
~ Saint Augustine

Meet the Founders
Founder & CEO
Hello my name is Logan Jackson. I was raised in a Christian home and was raised as a faithful Christian. I attended Liberty University in 2007 and received my Bachelors Degree in General Studies with an emphasis in Public Relations and Religion. I then attended the University of Phoenix where I received my Master’s Degree in Public Administration. I converted to Catholicism in 2015. In 2016 I started teaching for VIPKID where I teach English as a Second Language and fell in love with teaching. Even though my degrees were not in Education I do believe that they helped me to teach. In 2019 I found another school classed Outschool where I teach Government. I again fell in love teaching kiddos I loved seeing the lights come on to something new. Well in August of 2020 I felt the Lord leading to me do something more. I would continue to pray and seek him and it was late in August when I felt the Lord guiding me to start a Catholic online school like Outschool is. On September 24, 2020 Judah Catholic Academy was done. I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you and to see what the Lord is going to do in your lives.
