It is my true joy to be the principal of Saint Jerome School. I invite all parents and grandparents interested in a school where children are challenged to reach their highest potential, to grow in faith, and to learn the value of service to come in for a visit. Ranked among the top 10 schools in the Archdiocese, proud of the success of our alumni and honored by the partnership with our parents, we are a school where your child will learn and grow every day. Our students, from ages 3 through grade 8 delight us every day! Please come in to see for yourself all that could help shape your child's future!

Saint Jerome school has been a great experience for my child both academically and socially. The small class size allows the kids get to know their teachers and classmates very well. The school offers many extra curricular activities, such as band, drama, basketball and lego robotics. The school is very much a community of which faith and service are an integral part.
