- SJI`s curriculum is based on the nationally-recognizedSt Jerome Academy educational plan.SJI`s philosophy of the human person, vision for academic community and school culture, methodology, and Christocentric approach are fully anchored in the SJA educational plan.The SJI curriculum is both a continuation of that plan into the high school years and an authentic development of its core values tailored to the opportunities and challenges of young adulthood.
- The high school years mark a significant change in the life of the child. This is the time when girls and boys become young women and men. It is a dramatic time in the young person`s life, full of promise and peril. On the one hand, young people will naturally desire greater autonomy and enjoy new freedoms. Consequently, they begin to take greater ownership of their own education. On the other hand, driven by profound new longings and questions, students depend more than ever on friends and the broader community for their sense of identity. Their new freedoms place them in situations that can test their self-knowledge and self-command, often with a great deal at stake.Keeping this dichotomy in mind, SJI is devoted to maintaining a vibrant, respectful, and thoughtful community that lives out the truth that everything a school does teaches in some way. Within this humane community, students, teachers, and families can grow in knowledge and virtue.
- At SJI we believe that education fundamentally involves the formation of the human person. Beneath every class, every lesson lies our great responsibility to more deeply engage the question of each student`s destiny and purpose. Children in our society have been underestimated not merely in terms of what they can come to know or understand, but also in their capacity to love. At SJI, we give students the opportunity to strike out beyond the cynical, the tired, and the trite offerings so frequently designated to them, so that they may dare to gaze in wonder and awe at the great gift of the world around them.
