The St. Jude Educational Institute is a historic school in Montgomery, Alabama. It was opened in 1946 as a Roman Catholic high school, situated inside the Archdiocese of Mobile.

Initially established as ?the City of St. Jude? by Father Harold Purcell, the St. Jude Educational Institute was designed to advance the concerns of the African American community. It also offered college preparatory programs and basic skills and trade classes for adults during the night time.

The St. Jude Educational Institution is also a part of the Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail. The marches camped here in 1965 where famous singers performed during the ?Stars for Freedom? rally. It was also listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the ?City of St. Jude Historic District?.
