Look what’s happening at St. Jerome School                              

St. Jerome Catholic School will provide your child with a superior academic curriculum. Courses are taught from the basic Christian philosophy of education. Our preschool program focuses on socialization skills, sharing, development of motor skills, and Kindergarten readiness skills. This is achieved through hands-on-activities rather than the formal “worksheet” format. St. Jerome’s children do well in subsequent grades because they receive the best learning foundation. The effectiveness of our entire course content and teaching techniques is reflected on the Terra Nova Test results show our students perform average to above average the national norm. Discipline and low student/teacher ratio contribute to our success. 

St. Jerome’s highly dedicated teachers are committed to developing well-educated students. Students are encouraged to think…to make rational and responsible choices…to become life-long learners. St. Jerome School fosters an environment in which students learn how to study and mange time…skills of lifetime value.
