Why St. Jerome
St. Jerome Parish School strives to continue our legacy of 90 years, assuring a Catholic value-based education for our children centered in a loving and caring environment where respect, learning, faith and morals are intertwined.
Our philosophy is based upon care for the whole child: mind, body, and spirit. Jesus is certainly our formational role model for how we live and interact with others.
We provide our children with an environment conducive to academic excellence, from mastery of the basics and early critical thinking to problem solving and enrichment activities.
Our commitment to fostering a Catholic education for our children calls us to cherish and hand on the traditional values of our faith. So too, our emphasis on Catholic Social Teaching provides numerous opportunities to respond to the needs of the wider community and “make a difference”.
Our school motto, “Reach for Excellence,” is truly our “guiding star;” to never lose focus for high academic expectations coupled with high moral standards.
