St. Jerome School is a Catholic School dedicated to the total growth and development of the Christian child.
The faculty and staff recognize the dignity and differences of individual students.
Therefore, they strive to develop each child’s spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physically and social potential within a caring environment.
The mission of St. Jerome School is to educate the whole child: physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually.
In doing so we hope that each child follows the teachings of Jesus Christ and His Gospel teachings, becomes life long learners, people of prayer, service and community building.
In cooperation with the parents, the primary educators, the faculty strives to provide academic excellence in a setting that attempts to implement the values and traditions of the Catholic Church.
While recognizing the homogeneous character of the school, programs and projects are designed to extend the focus from their personal culture and the world around them.
The emphasis must be that each child respects the dignity of every human being.
