St Jerome School

  • 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.
