St Jerome School

     Tel: (215)624-0637
Grades: PK - 8 | 576 students
Saint Jerome Catholic School is a Middle States accredited school.
It was re accredited in the Spring of 1999.
The goal of our Middle States Project was to strengthen our Catholic Identity within the school and the families of our school community.
There is a strong emphasis on prayer and spirituality.
All students attend mass at least twice a month.
The students serve in our liturgies as altar servers, lectors, cantors and in the presentation of the gifts.
Once a week a different grade receives the sacrament of Reconciliation.
We are dedicated to teaching and practicing the traditions of our faith.
A variety of prayer services are experienced throughout the year.
As a school we begin each day with prayer via our closed circuit TV system.
This prayer is lead by two students.
As a concrete means of fostering a knowledge of religion we instituted a Religion Bowl.
This began as a competition within our school.
In the Spring of 1999 this evolved into a District Seven Religion Bowl.
All the Catholic Schools in our district are invited to the competition.
One of the greatest assets of our religious program is our pastor, Reverend Joseph Graham.
He provides the sacramental experiences for our students.
Weekly he teaches a religion class in the sixth, seventh and eighth grade.
His support, guidance and example are commendable.
