St. Jerome School

The St. Jerome School community believes that it is our mission to direct our students to embrace the world in which they live and to serve a world in need.
We work in cooperation with the parents whom we recognize as the primary educators of their children.
We believe that all St. Jerome children are called to be Christian leaders amongst their families, their local communities, in the workplace, and in the world according to their abilities.
In that respect we teach the children the doctrine and traditions of the Catholic faith along with the curriculum designed by the state.
We prepare them spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally, aesthetically, and physically to meet the challenges that high school will offer.
