what’s happening at St. Jerome School
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.

rational and responsible choices…to become life-long learners.

how to study and mange time…skills of lifetime value.
