Our Mission Statement


Following the tradition of St. Philip Neri, the St. Jerome Catholic School family challenges students to achieve spiritual, social, moral, and physical excellence within a safe, joyful and nurturing environment.
















St. Jerome is a joyful family united in faith, love and academic excellence. The staff and students are joyful, intellectually proficient, and exhibit Christian values such as service, compassion, and unity.


St. Jerome Catholic School brings to every facet of education a passion for excellence in teaching, learning and discipline in grades pre-K3 through 8. Established in 1961 and fully accredited, our distinguished faculty includes a speech pathologist, guidance counselor, and state certified teachers. As part of the ministry of St. Jerome’s Catholic Church, we are proud to be an intimate faith-and-family-centered school.


St. Jerome’s provides a well-balanced, yet demanding curriculum with a strong emphasis on academic advancement and excellence.


​ Over​ ​90%​ percent of St. Jerome graduates are accepted into and attend some of the leading high schools in the area such as St. Thomas Aquinas High School, Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop McCarthy and Chaminade-Madonna and 98 percent also go on to become college graduates.


We continually strive to integrate new technologies and materials into the classroom; and as part of this commitment, SJS incorporates Promethean Interactive White-Boards in all classrooms, iMac's and a fully functional media lab in our library. Middle school students are all apart of our One-to-One iPad initiative, providing them with the necessary educational tools to help guide them into the 21st Century.
